Animated blocks of red rule as the dominate color, interspersed with blue, teal and green, and accented with lively mark making. "This piece explores the innate richness that is rooted in our culture to transcend our personal insecurities," says Tarver. "It is intentionally vibrant with depth and texture to depict a safe container for exploring our own hidden potential." 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.
