ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

TARYN TREISMAN- TAZ

TARYN TREISMAN HAS EMBRACED THE DIGITAL ERA, WITH A MODERN COLORFUL POP SWIRL AND GRAFFITI OR URBAN ART STYLE. SHE DOES NOT CONFORM TO STRAIGHT LINES, AND BELIEVES IN ORGANIZED CHAOS. SHE BELIEVES WE ARE LIVING IN THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION AND HER ARTWORK IS A SIGN OF THE TIMES. "MY PAINTINGS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE WORLD I SEE AROUND ME. I AM INSPIRED BY POP CULTURE AND THINGS THAT I FIND INTERESTING. MY LOVE OF COLOR AND SLEEK LOOK OF THE PERSPEX IS WHAT REALLY MAKES MY ARTWORK STAND OUT. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED FASHION AND INCLUDE JACKETS IN SOME OF MY ARTWORKS SUCH AS THE LEATHER JACKET OR GUCCI SILK BOMBER JACKETS. MY ARTWORKS ARE STATEMENT PIECES THAT ARE A REFLECTION OF THE EXPERIENCES I HAVE IN MY LIFE."
