Tara Austin, “WP#8″, acrylic and gold leaf on plexiglass, 20″ x 16”, 2016


A Liberated Version

The background of WP#8 contains a homage to Art Deco, and we see that the four corners found in WP#4 are gone here. Although WP#8 is a twin of WP#4, we can see a clear divergence in everything but the limitless center.

  • About Tara Austin

    Tara Austin is a Duluth artist whose vast body of work is a testament to nature and reality. Her rich landscapes are of chaos, complexity, and order. They hold as much inherent beauty as a satellite image of a hurricane, a sunflowers' petals, or an assemblage of diatoms under a microscope.
