Artist Statement

Tanya Slingsby is a visual artist creating abstract works that harness the fundamental power of colour, form, line and surface to create a visceral reaction in the viewer. Since 2002, she has focused solely on abstraction in painting, creating visual discourses on primordial and ethereal states in nature and the human condition. Using a formalist approach, Slingsby explores the energetic and emotional interplay of colour, texture and surface. Each work is a meditative addition and subtraction, layering polymer resin, pigment and encaustic 'mis en plat'.
