the aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
painting provides a platform of continuation, so does the cir·cle. it provides a set of points equidistant from a fixed center. a process that forms a connected whole in continuously repeating itself. i often wonder where the circle begins and how it relates to other concepts. the paintings go through multiple layers of texture and color. the layering process allows me to investigate the link between structure and transformation. always anticipating the next layer in an effort to create a field of coherence
tina is an abstract painter who navigates seamlessly between heavily layered, geometrical inspired work and expressionistic abstract figurative art. on the surface this might seem contradictory, for tina it's simply a way of crosstraining so to speak, a discipline to engage both hemispheres creatively
tina is a selected member of blackburn and friends, a san francisco bay area abstract artist collective www.blackburnandfriends
