‘Coral’ is a series of dreamscapes created with stacked transparent sheets with each one etched. The programmed led lights set in the frame illuminate the markings creating a holographic fluctuating image. These visually arresting works are addressing the importance of protecting our oceans which are struggling to survive with plastic and human waste contamination. I present a new illusion of depth and layering. The intent is to establish a contemplative space, where the viewer can slow down in this fast pace world, and breathe. Tatyana Murray
"British artist Tatyana Murray finds inspiration in harsh juxtaposition: the tranquility of nature and the restlessness of urban civilization, childhood innocence and the brutality of man, subtle simplicity and grandiose complexity. But her work transcends mere depiction, immersing viewers in her world of tension and resolution through an elegantly balanced amalgamation of texture and light. Of particular note is her seemingly endless repertoire of materials, which in turn gives her work its unquestionably modern flair." notes writer Peter Dreux for Art Zealous
When I was a child I found myself at the bottom of the pool looking up at the water's surface. I recall such a sense of peace basking in the blue and white light. Getting off the plane in New York for the first time in 1996 I had the same overwhelming sensation as I looked up at the crystal clear light emanating down on the city. Ever since those seminal moments, I have been very connected with and moved by images of light.
Via a meditative process, the pieces reveal themselves through trial and error. The work takes me as well as the audience on a journey of reflection, hope and awakening.
The viewer experiences a tension; playfulness and authority, commerce and culture, tenderness and violence. Through these themes, I celebrate life and all its textures, tempos and colors. The intention is to create visually arresting works that makes one stop and reflect.
