Tara Austin, “Anaglypta”, acrylic and egg shell on plexiglass, 48″ x 96″, 2017


All the Processes

Austin adhered to a grid structure to accomplish the feat that is Anaglypta. There is almost too much for any mind to compute at a single go. The center is composed of bits of egg shell, while the rest is a richly cooked stew of neo-baroque rosemaling, repeating patterns and slightly divergent color fields. One gets the sense that Anaglypta is, in and of itself, a sort of intelligence to be reckoned with.

  • 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.
