From her upcoming "Evolution Collection"
THE PROSHKA COLLECTIONS
Angela has 7 main Art Collections, the six below have been featured in all of her shows and books. The newest Collection, "Her Evolution Collection", will be introduced in her upcoming Art show, IMPULSE on November 13th, 2009
As an artist, I find it necessary to be inventive, self-expressive, searching, daring, even disturbing, and in doing so, I am hoping to enlighten others and open ways for a better understanding of my art. I am fascinated by the variety, complexity, beauty, and seduction of abstract art and have always been intrigued by surrealism. My work is based on abstract (not to be mistaken for non-objective art) and is a translation of a real life experience, a thought, a dream, and is a complete exaggeration of my perception of reality. It can create a new feeling, vision, or experience that exists outside of the rules of realism.
Digitally Enhanced Photography Series
DIGITALLY ENHANCED PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES
This is a series in which I utilize my digital photography and manipulate the images.I use different programs, spending hours at a time testing/teasing/taunting the images so as to distort/enhance/manipulate them. I often change the colors of the original image completely, by adding bright hues into the images, and at often times changing the entire image from its original form…

Abstract Linear Layering Collection
ABSTRACT LINEAR LAYERING COLLECTION
Abstract Linear Layering, is a collection of paintings, composed and created by applying layer upon layer upon layer upon layer and, yes, even more layers of paint. This is a very time consuming process as drying time is involved. Each layer must be done separately, and must be completely dry before I can add another layer. The linear movements in and on the paintings are precise, sharp, and clear, it is a very organized process.

Her Body Dismorphic Collection
HER BODY DISMORPHIC COLLECTION
This is a collection of paintings based entirely on my perception of the human form and in retrospect, myself. It is my twisted and ‘dismorphic’ view of what human bodies look like – many times with enormous legs/ stomachs/breasts/hair and in most cases, with ribs protruding out of their form. Human ribs are quite a common thing In my works/these pieces/this art Of mine! I have several variations and most often utilize the female form to create my so called artistic masterpieces.
Series in which she calls 'Tears'
THE SERIES IN WHICH SHE CALLS TEARS
Tears is a collection of paintings that portrays true life tears, whether they are tears of joy/love/laughter/sorrow/hate/sadness - a death, a loss, a birth, a gain: it all depends on what your tears represent! The works all follow a very symmetrical base, If you look into the piece, You will see it/that/the symmetry – that is – along with the tears that accompany it/the artwork/the piece.
Her Red & Black Collection
HER RED AND BLACK COLLECTION
In this collection I utilize two main colors, an obvious red and black. Red is the color of fire & blood; it symbolizes passion, power, and protection. Black is the color which has the least harmony of all colors. I combine the two to create my own balance on canvas. Most often times, I draw/paint/design a black female nude, (her shape/form/image)onto and into the red background. This collection is vigorous, forceful and dynamic, It represents strength and energy.

In this collection I utilize brush, palette and other artistic utensils to create artistic masterpieces.
