geronimo says

when we encounter tanja riebel’s art, we get deeply drawn into her emotional worlds depicted through natural elements. so, real and fictional sceneries are combined to move in between the surface and depth of human emotions. to draw us into these worlds of mostly green and blue shades, she is using oil colours, sometimes even neutral structures of graphic works. tanja transcends boundaries by utilising alternative media like performance or installations to expand her ideas.

when engaging with tanja’s works we are able to get lost in her works as well as explore emotions like the impermanence and fragility of every aspect of life. looking at her brush stroke one wonders: is the scenery moving or is it still? are we stuck or moving?
