LOCAL FINE ARTIST, Winner
Many might know Taryn Alessandro from her live painting performances at some of the hottest festivals and late night jubilees. Her landscapes are proof positive shes a funambalist of the fine line of mastering light and shadow, and her provocative intimate portraits will both make you blush and edge-in for a closer look. I refuse to get bored or become mechanical in painting, says Alessandro. Using a variety of materials opens up my imagination into a whole new playground of possibilities.... and provides both a visual and tactile experience.
