“I make bright and colorful fluid abstract paintings that are therapeutic and soothing for the soul.”
Natasha Patel is a self-taught abstract artist based out of Southern California. Growing up she was most fascinated by the energetic expressionism of Jackson Pollock and the underlying feminism portrayed by the flowers of Georgia O’Keefe.
She uses fluid acrylics, alcohol and acrylic inks, sand, and more recently epoxy resin to create abstract paintings that are bold in color and vibrant in composition. In her recent works, she has been heavily influenced by the patterns and structures found in nature and the universe. She is currently working to combine these into one cohesive abstract style playing on all influences.
“My recent work is heavily influenced by the colors, patterns, and structures found in nature and the universe. The repetition of linear and cellular patterns, the gentle ripples in lakes and rivers, and aerial photography of landscapes, are all sources of inspiration, and have helped me to understand patience and the beauty of being fully present in a moment.”
