DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

A beautiful and unique approach to the landscape genre. Tania Malkin’s aerial perspective takes full advantage of organic shapes, line, depth and colour. Her cropped orientation of the view presents a beautiful composition, drawing the eye towards the edges of each earth formation. It’s a surreal result with a real sense of movement, encouraging my imagination to extend on the image itself and position these formations further within a vast land. The colours are soft and warm, making this artwork adaptable and well-suited for inclusion in any personal or professional spaces.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

This work comes at you in stages. Upon first glance you see a painted landscape; look longer and you see branches of a tree; finally, you realise that it is in fact an aerial photograph. This trompe d’œil keeps you guessing, even after discovering its true identity. This is a versatile piece that would hang well in a living room, dining room or perhaps best a bedroom, as it offers a peaceful outlook.
