The pristine lines of determined geometry that adorn her canvases are favored by viewers for their clean contours. Her colour palette ranges from sharp black and white contrasts to a fine merger of contiguous blends. The imposition of a ballerina in motion on the surface suggests a mood of well-being, harmony and lyricism. Fascinated by the drama of opposites attracted towards each other, Pragya reveals an entirely different personality in other works, where the squared segments box in her ideas into compartmented cellular arrangements, suggesting a narrative born of questioning, statements on current trends, and the need to focus on issues in a systematic manner.
The growth pattern in her art is visible through a striving to explore.
