La Jolla Sunset
La Jolla Sunset is devoted to the horizon as much as it captures the vivacity of the sea. The meeting of sea and sky to create the horizon is an eternal theme that has inspired many artists. However, Arun Prem brings to it his unique take. The horizon is not depicted in the typical way with the sunset in the center of the painting, but it is at a diagonal with the sea in the foreground. This brings a sense of tautness to the work, while the salmon pink clouds that engulfs the blue foaming sea, creates an atmosphere that is energizing. It is a sight that is said to evoke peace and calm in the viewer. Even though the work is evocative of the Californian beach town, Premis a diaspora artist brings to the work his take on universal beauty.
Medium: Oil on canvas.
