Tara has been developing an abstract language through painting to contemplate aspects of the landscape. She is particularly interested in the interplay of land, sky and cityscape. "I paint to find beauty in the tension between the illusion of a felt space and the primitive mark that created it.” She works with rich Venetian plaster and trowels on wood panel. The plaster is a malleable material and used in layers — it allows her to question aspects of time, light, and space.
