Wellington based multi disciplinary Artist Tanaya Shirsikar has been fascinated with the colours and light of the skies above her since childhood. How the light changes from Sunrise to Sunset through to the dramtic and mysterious moon cycles are constant sources of inspiration for the Artist.
Tanaya has been capturing these moments in time since 2020 as she paints intricate landscapes using her hand-thrown porcelain vessels as the canvas. Tanaya loves the three dimensional aspect of the canvas adding interest to the composition. Her painting style, a fusion of Realism and Impressionism to capture the mood an Original work of Art.
The landscape scenes are painted with tiny little brushes using ceramic underglaze as the paint medium. Every step from start to finish presents its own unique challenges for the porcelain clay works, but it is exactly these challenges that Tanaya enjoys and what makes each piece totally unique.
