Tania Bostock

Nelson based artist.

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. 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 ageing my paintings may resemble man-made objects such as rusted metal, or the beautiful fine subtleties in natures stone. To achieve this effect I am influenced by colour and texture, clearing my mind to concentrate only on the process.
