Landscape with the unique shine and texture of Venetian Plaster.
From Tara Costello:
I have been developing an abstract language through painting to contemplate aspects of the landscape. I am particularly interested in the interplay of land, sky and cityscape. I work with rich shiny Venetian plaster and trowels on wood panel. The plaster is a malleable material and used in layers -- it allows me to question aspects of time, light and space. I paint to find beauty in the tension between the illusion of a felt space and the primitive mark that created it.
