About the artist:

Site: www.tatianastropp.com

Tatiana Stropp has been creating paintings with oil paint on aluminum plates by using a seemingly simple procedure: color stripes made from a single stroke of the brush. The color palette results from the different stripes overlapping and/or juxtaposing both horizontally and vertically.

From this simple painting process, and the rigueur of repeatedly producing the colored stripes with a single brushstroke, Tatiana Stropp has developed a painting technique that highlights several color shades as well as the opacities and transparencies resulting from the color accumulation that takes place on the aluminum surface. The thin and transparent paint layers cause the colors to mix on top of the aluminum surface, creating situations of opacity and ambient light reflection. It is a simple work that begins and ends with each brushstroke, but which, as the color stripes overlap and crisscross, reveals a new universe of hues, opacities, light reflections – the simple becomes complex.
