Tanja’s painting is essentially abstract. She works in large and small formats on paper, canvas and wood, combining different materials: acrylic, chalk, charcoal, ink, etc.. She sometimes combines abstraction with more concrete forms on themes evoking wildlife, cities and women. The Danish artist draws her inspiration from her everyday life: a light filtering through the urban environment, a natural shape or an unusual shade are all enough to stimulate her creativity.
Tanja creates in her works a dialogue between shapes and colours that responds with imagination and sets the framework for a story. Her technique is based on the superposition of many thin layers. She strives in this way to make the bright colours vibrate, to give, by contrast, a certain depth to her large bright and pure backgrounds. This depth encourages the viewer to take part in the unfinished story it tells. The notion of transience that characterizes her work effectively leaves the field open to feelings and imagination.
