Tania Rutland

Concerned with the push and pull between representation and abstraction found in a particular type of landscape, the selective elements and the appropriation of these within the landscape are what define Tania's paintings.

An abstracted view of nature, in a humanised countryside, she captures a sense of looking at something close up and yet very much removed.

The imagery is a mixture of memory/ remembrance, drawn or photographed features, to a source material of something more tangible and real. 

She works on several images at one time, allowing her to transport specific ideas and techniques from one picture to the next. Thus over a period of time there is a natural evolution and cohesion within the work.
