Prabhavathi Meppayil – the daughter of a goldsmith – transposes the rudiments of an ancestral savoir-faire as the basis of a contemporary plastic language for critically revisiting the modernist/minimalist crux. Her art practice draws on traditional craft and values the truth of materials and tools as well as simple forms, colours and shapes. Lines are a leitmotiv in Meppayil’s work and she often uses copper as material.
