Annika Tara

Annika Tara is softened by domesticity and driven by the wild. Intimately identifying with natural forms, fueled by raw connection to life's rhythms, she manifests her meditation on the cyclical patterns of death feeding rebirth. Through textile fibers, found animal parts, gleaned plant life, twisting color, coaxing form, sewing it all into a symphony of juxtaposition; new visual metaphor. The artistic process of scavenging and manipulating organic media and the exploration of the form they take accesses a heart-soul connectivity unparalleled and out of the reach of orthodoxy.These pieces are intuition, they are knowing in body and hand. They are the unyielding fascination and tension between internal and external landscapes.
