Best of Beachscapes: Tania Chanter

THE INCREDIBLE BEACHSCAPE ARTISTS YOU NEED TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.

“I have always had a love of the ocean,” says artist Tania Chanter. “The depth and richness of the colours, the complexity of the sky, the churning foam of the ocean on stormy days and the sunlight playing through tall grasses as they bend and wave.” Tania’s abstract works capture the rich colours found along the Australian coast, and draw on the power and drama of storms, sunlight and the ocean. Using brushes, knitting needles and her favourite tools, her hands, the artist adds layer upon layer to each canvas until she is satisfied. What results are alluring, sensory pieces that are full of energy.
