Artist: Tanya Darl
Tanya is a painter and photographer inspired by the Australian landscape. Her works explore the colours and vision of the outback, rainforests, bushland, waterways, streetscapes, old houses and cityscapes.
Tanya loves to express her emotions through her artwork. Her preferred tools are her bare hands, brushes, palette knives, squeegees and sponges. She loves the feel and texture of paint, with acrylics and oils on canvas, timbre or cardboard.
Her semi-abstract technique is free and rapid, in sync with her sometimes fast mind. She drips, pours, flicks and smears paint onto the canvas. “I find it energetic and fun! I also find painting to be reflective… when I am tapping into my emotional work,” she said.
Recently Tanya has exhibited at Places of the World and Imagination at Brisbane Square Library, Art from the Margins Outsider Art Awards at The Old Museum, Celebrating Difference at KPMG and Paralym Art World Cup in Tokyo.
