Promilla's collection of paintings in soft pastels on paper and mixed media on canvas is an insight into the enigmatic world of Nature and the mysterious depths of the inner self. Every composition expresses a revelation as the external quest goes on. It is a synchronization of turbulence with tranquillity, the dark with the celestial.
Her new work reflects the mystic beauty of nature- the penetrated moonlit nights, transcendental clouds in the sky, vibrant rich greens, pulsating forms of trees, scattered sun rays, snowy mountains, various enchanting colours of different seasons and the blazing sunsets on the sea. These diversified scenes are enigmatically portrayed in her latest nature series.
