As a lover of art and philosophy Tara Will has always been chasing after conveying to the viewer a subject’s essence. “I love to try to capture the essence in a way that has moved me at that moment. The energy of the subject shifts with time, season, light and feeling. Whether it be a landscape or a figure, everything has a feeling to it,” says Will. “Viewing art is a conversation between the artist and the viewer. Neither holds the power to define what the other thinks or feels about the work. It is a conversation where the artist brings their experience, history, energy, sight and feeling; and the viewer does the exact same.”
She hopes that her work moves the viewer to feel an emotion, to think differently, to notice the mundane or appreciate the simplicity. Will explains that she loves mark making, contrast, color and shape, each of these things dictating the way something feels—the direction of a mark, the size of a shape, the contrasting of color and value. “Painting produces an endless variety of subjects and thoughts,” she says, “and I hope to never tire of it.” —
