Tiffany Calvert

This will be the first time we show the American painter’s work in the gallery. Tiffany Calvert’s paintings draw on historical and contemporary imagery to explore the shifting nature of perception. Her work is primarily concerned with fragmenting and obstructing images, interrupting the transmission of visual information in order to create an opening for the viewer. She brings a modern approach to classical painting: painting on top of large-scale digital prints, she uses a combination of oil paint and digital editing to create stunning compositions that are fragmented and obscured, echoing not only the 17th Dutch still-life painters but also Cezanne and the Impressionists.
