Pragya’s research and practice are driven by her interest in landscapes, time and distance. She works primarily with drawing, painting, photography and people often looking at the intersection of materials and methods. She relies on her background in art and science to study landscapes as a function of time and distance and to find material translations for the elements that impose their influence in shaping both earthly and (and lately) cosmic landscapes.
Pragya has exhibited her work in India and internationally at the Georgetown Arts Festival in Malaysia, The Winston Oh Travel Award exhibition, Art of Greening at Scotts Square, and Spot Art at the Ministry of Communications and Information in Singapore, Gelb in Switzerland, A Eulogy to Things That Never Were in India, DIG at San Mei Gallery, London, Make it Public at the Design Museum, London among others.
