Teal, orange, gold, blue and purple color blocks. "This piece explores our conscious interplay with life and the validity of the soul," explains Tarver. "Animating the world around us is easy if we are able to see the true color of things. The rich tones speak of balance and harmony as we engage more fully with ourselves." Part of Tarver's signature series of layered, meditative abstractions. She draws inspiration for these pieces from her studio view of a lake, and uses her garden as a seasonal color reference. Tarver first sketches in charcoal to define the composition and then enjoys squirting, spreading and blending paint on the surface to create new and unexpected colors and patterns.
