Tania Bostock Connections

 

TANIA BOSTOCK
My Paintings are Strong, deliberately Imperfect, and Beautiful. For me painting is emotive, and a great deal of time and thought goes into each creation, which comes solely from my imagination. I am drawn to texture and contrast, and my process consists of straightening and perfecting, then pushing the paint in a freer, less controlled manner. I find both approaches necessary, working in multiple layers with each. Symbolic of time and aging, imaginary moments and special memories housed, my paintings may resemble man-made objects such as rusted metal or old walls in a building. To achieve this effect I am influenced by colour and texture, clearing my mind to concentrate only on the process. AWARDS.
