Bringing together different mediums such as brick, dust, slate, wood, metal, graphite, pigment, ink, canvas, and paper, Pravat’s works display materials and forms that are drawn from the built environment and evolution of cityscapes.
He says, “My interest in this subject comes from the lived experience of a city that is in a constant state of flux, both tangible and intangible, negotiating between its masterplan, its popular aspirations. One is in the middle of these transformations, be it from the intimacy of one’s home or on larger scales of urban development projects: lived experience of a city that is in a constant state of flux, both tangible and intangible, negotiating between its masterplan, its popular aspirations. In the past, I tried to capture these changing forms through under-construction sites arrested in time. In recent years, my practice has turned to exploring processes of deconstruction, not only of the urban environment but of habitats, materials and images.”
