Artist
Tiffany Blaise Vancouver, Canada

Tiffany Blaise draws on the natural grandeur of British Columbia to develop her dreamy, expressionist seascapes. Before venturing into her studio in East Vancouver, she spends time walking the beach, taking photos and simply sitting and observing the light around her. Tiffany explains that even with a photo, her goal is to capture the mood, feeling and gesture of the scene. She begins painting by creating a study of her reference photograph to map out the key visual elements and establish the color palette. Color matching is one of her favorite aspects of painting, and she finds that it is highly influenced by her mood and the season. As a young developing artist, Tiffany devotes time to experimenting with different mediums, researching new techniques and studying the work of other artists. “I'm putting in my 10,000 hours!” she says. “A defining moment for me was realizing my love for painting the wilderness while I was at an artist residency in a national park near Sydney [Australia]. Since then I have not been able to stop sourcing my imagery from hikes and adventures.” Tiffany’s work has been featured in the Montreal Art Matters Festival, The Ferry Building Gallery, The Telus World of Science, and the Cirque Du Soleil headquarters.

    Artist Statement

    The bold and dramatic nature of my work is translated through my fascination with capturing emotionally charged landscapes. In my artistic practice, I explore the themes of movement, introspection and transformation. My subjects range from minimal landscapes to monumental waves.

    Opaque oil paint and cold wax are blended, moved and sculpted on the surface of the artworks with an impasto technique to capture my own consciousness as well as the mood of a scene. This notion of creating poetic landscapes is inspired by Cezanne’s works and his idea that "A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art."
