Tara Spicer is an artist based on the beautiful coast of Queensland Australia and has been painting and exhibiting for roughly twenty years.
Tara Spicer has a wonderful gift for immersing the viewer into her world. Her paintings engage us with their strength of character and their subtle, yet raw, colour palette. Each original work evokes a sense of enduring, self-contained innocence and contentment. Works range in themes from playful childhood wonder to deeper, more convoluted meaning.
Tara’s works present a subdued colour palette to allow the central figure to hold the power within each piece, giving a strength of presence within the piece as well as space for the viewer to place themselves inside the artwork. Her works allow you to truly immerse yourself in the feelings of the moment presented through each piece.
Tara’s paintings engage us with their dainty tea cups – a symbol of the artists own for ‘taking time to connect with friends and to be kind to oneself’ along with many other elements of Allegorical Symbolism personal to the artist, such as feathers, top hats, nests and trees. Each original work of Tara’s tells a story and may even offer a little piece of wisdom that the artist herself has gained along her own life’s path
“I believe that painted images have the power to create a shift within a person, not unlike a song or a well-read story, that changes the person from that moment on. It is in this belief that I create the works that are displayed here, in the hope that I can bring warmth, magic and hope to those who love my work …… That on some level, the viewer is moved and their faith in this world and their own light is restored and inspired.” – Tara
