Tara Massarsky –short statement
My work over the years has evolved around the same core tenet, that the energy that surrounds us, simply is “us”. I work around the theme of interconnectedness by exploring through various series cycles and applying an abstractionist viewpoint. I am always exploring how to visually express as a world and as a species we are intertwined and connected on a deep level energetically. I work as a rule in acrylic and mixed media, and for the most part, my work is large scale. I explore within my themes and challenge myself while pushing my pieces to what I find is their ultimate potential. In doing so I hope to allow the viewer to participate in the unfolding process.
