Ieva Tatarsky

mixed media

The dense textures of Ieva Tatarsky’s intimate works invite close viewing while asking us to explore the meaning of richly layered surfaces. In her words: “Much of the time what you see is the result of my enjoyment in putting together common materials in ways we don’t commonly encounter them. I am interested in the interaction of energy between shapes or objects. Visually, this energy is seen as linear elements or wires reaching outward. I also make use of the different energies expressed in handwriting fragments, which span generations and languages.”
