Artist: Tarisse King
Medium: Acrylic on Linen
Like her father, Tarisse paints a Water series. She understands the life giving properties water provides and feels this element in particular connects her to her father. The depth of water and the rejuvenating qualities it offers can be felt luring the viewer to her paintings.
Technically, Tarisse captures the movement and shimmer of the water as seen from above through her varied tonal use of blues and whites. She paints aquatic peaks and troughs employing a condensation of dots to create the peaks and a sparseness of dots to reveal the black canvas below and represent the deep black waters and the shadows lurking underneath. They form such an optical effect the canvas appears to move
