Prajakti Jayavant's artwork questions and expands the paradigms of reductive abstract painting and sculpture by focusing on the development of perceptual complexity from the basic elements of color, shape, and form. Her interests involve the reflexive ideas of the physical and conceptual bending of: dimension, space, emotion, history, hue and the trove of content that restriction can conjure.
Jayavant has exhibited at the Drawing Center, New York, curated by Luis Camnitzer and at Meridian Gallery, San Francisco in shows separately curated by Lawrence Rinder and John Zarobell which were both reviewed by Kenneth Baker in the San Francisco Chronicle. She was a recipient for the Visions from the New California award and for artist in residence fellowships at Djerassi Residence Artists Program and at Headlands Center for the Arts.
Prajakti Jayavant holds a BFA from Ohio State University and an MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts.
