Art2Muse Gallery presents ‘Imperfection’ by Tannya Harricks.
Tannya Harricks is a Sydney based artist known for her lush paintings characterised by gestural marks and painterly abstractions. Intent on capturing the energy of the subject through spontaneous gesture, she paints intuitively and without premeditation. The subject of her work is reimagined in the manipulation of colour and form with fluid brushwork.
“My recent paintings and works on paper are inspired by environments I have explored close to home and further afield.
“In 2020 I spent time in Mt Kosciuszko mountain biking, hiking and painting. As the snow melts and the river flows, the mountain wakes up and starts humming with life. The diversity of landscape is incredible from the rocky moonscape at the summit to the bright little wildflowers all over the mountain.
“My own garden has also been a source of fascination for the last 18 months. I am slightly obsessed with the numerous camelias in our 1950’s garden. What appear to be polished little dots of vivid colour amongst rich glossy foliage are full of imperfections on close inspection. It is these imperfections and the messiness of nature that I am interested in – from the bruised petals of the weather beaten garden variety flowers to the exposed sandstone and shale headland at Barrenjoey.” – Tannya Harricks, 2021
