Oil painting, oil pastel and pencil on handmade Washi sourced in Nara and G. F. Smith paper | 2017 

A further development of the artist’s musings on ecological and environmental philosophies, Deep Ecology explores the inherent worth of non-human organisms. The series is an artistic exploration of the natural world and the delicate harmony of homeostasis that exists within the biosphere. Found paper, washi papers sourced in Japan and oil paints are used to create a subtle patchwork, reminiscent of the artist’s sculptural works and textile installations, concealing ecological messages rendered in soft materials.

With her rich body of often semi-autobiographical work, Tagada generates positivity through her work, deriving inspirations from her daily life and experience, as well as from close observation of nature.
