Tasha Amini

Untitled

2008
Oil on canvas

111 x 161cm

Untitled pictures a figure in a wheelchair. When making this painting Amini was thinking about confinement and repose, and imagined the figure staring out of the window for hours lost in her own daydreams and thoughts. Amini relates this feeling to the experience of painting alone in a studio. Amini executes this scene in soft, almost translucent colours that lend an air of transience and physical intangibility. Throughout her practice Amini engages with the sense of expansive psychological or internalised space. Her paintings visualise subconscious sensation and capture the reflective pauses within thought as a disquieting stillness.
