My work is concerned with figuration and the representation of the world. This can take the form of landscapes or portrait. I am interested in composition and the way that colour, line, mark and texture and can be used to evoke a narrative or emotion within an image. My work makes references to art history, literature, classicism and symbolism. I am interested in the idea that paintings can be read and provide layers of meaning once you begin to understand the references within them.
My usual medium is watercolour although I will freely use Acrylic ink and other mediums within my painting if I feel they are needed. I normally paint landscapes, often in a semi abstract style. I find my greatest inspiration coming from the colours found in nature, although I may often exaggerate them. I love the way watercolour moves and reacts on the page when given the freedom to do so, although for an artist this can sometimes be a little unnerving!
Impressionist landscapes in oils, usually painted on location. Figure and portrait drawing and painting in various media and the occasional still life.
Tania Holland Gallery was established in 2008 in the Shropshire market town of Bridgnorth and relocated in 2016 to the historic Red House Glass Cone Museum and Craft Centre in Stourbridge. Tania offers an original collection of punny animal designs in the form of collage on canvas and mixed media sculpture. Each original “Wordplay Menagerie” design incorporates a second motif or theme that together create a visual pun and every piece includes a fictitious dictionary style definition of the pun that it represents.
