DESCRIPTION

Oil on paper and Washi paper, found paper, and textile collage | 2018

In Tagada’s series “Safe Space”, she paints women holding teacups in order to emphasize the daily action and ritual of tea as a space created for comfort. In these moments of painting her subjects she spoke in depth to the women about social and ecological subjects they were passionate about. These original works on paper mark an evolution in Tagada’s practice that she plans to continue on canvas.

“Contemporary cultures are often extremely fast and ever-changing. My practice engages with slower tasks which demand commitment and help us to focus our attention. In my paintings, I depict activities such as growing plants and preparing and sharing tea, which also are parts of my daily life.”
