New York City, New York (PressExposure) October 29, 2011 -- Sleek, serene colors, tempered with celestial light, distinguish the works of painter Tarah Nutter. With opulent nuance of texture, paint cascades through Nutter's paintings with startling poeticism. With a soft, ethereal treatment of her subjects, the artist paints fantastic, whimsical landscapes with a sensuous sensitivity towards the essence of her focus. Transfixed by the wonders of the natural world, she observes the fields, trees and flowers in her sight with a distinctive, mystical eye for the capriciously stunning. Nutter believes that painting mediates the vibrations that constitute the essence of painting and thus, between our selves. "As in meditation the goal is to refine the inner vibration," she explains. "In painting it is the vibrations and relationships between the forms and colors within the work that I'm interested in." In speaking to these relationships through painterly, delicately lavish brushwork, Nutter portrays the beauty inherent in all facets of the natural world.
Born in Hollywood, Tarah Nutter lives and works in Santa Rosa, California.
