Tegan’s work speaks of an artist who is inspired. The strong use of colour, adventurous use of different medias and drips of paint boldly placed by happenstance, all speak of a creative mind in its element. This work speaks of female empowerment. Tegan’s women aren’t looking at us, they don’t engage with the viewer, instead their thick curly hair covers their gaze, speaking to a power that lives within.

Tegan’s integrated use of medium is as spirited as her exploration of female form. The candied pink wash in combination with the salty and tenacious lines of these two bodies evoke not only a sense of lusciousness, but reveal dynamic tensions between the tenderness and the ferocity of female identity. The eyes placed on the figures reference the mystical third eye, emphasising Tegan’s fascination with inner worlds and workings of the mind as much as bodily experiences. Could these eyes also be an assertion of power from the female body? Their faces are hidden with an abundance of hair that drips and falls over their curves. They see with covered faces, alluding to a more collective message of female empowerment. These figures stare self-assuredly, aware of the gaze of the viewer, empowered in their vulnerability.
