Ones to Watch: Tania Chanter

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

For Tania Chanter, overthinking is antithesis to her artistic practice. Drawing from the immediate, nature-rich context of her home in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, her gestural brushstrokes reflect an intuitive process that is ruled by emotion. Whether directing her focus on a vase of pink flowers, a choppy moonlit seascape or a sparse, darkened promontory, the layers, textures and colours of Tania’s work bleed onto the page in the same uninterrupted way, lending the final product a cohesive yet idiosyncratic patina.
