Tallulah Nunez’s works construct a world of their own: they take the viewer in micro and macrocosm, where elements of the real, the unconscious and chance collide.
Nunez’s view of nature is at turns abstract, sculptural, utopian or staged.
Nunez’s enigmatic pictorial inventions are characterised by opulence and exuberant richness of detail. It is a hermetic place beyond all places that can be experienced in exterior reality. However, this artificial nature seems beyond comparison. She derives new laws for nature, laws derived from painting.
What makes Tallulah Nunez unique in the contemporary art landscape is the way her work reveals the artificiality of nature, nature as artefact made.
Her works were recently exhibited in Takapuna, Auckland, here.
Tallulah Nunez is a mid-career artist who creates multi-layered abstract paintings, assemblages and most recently paintings of intimate imaginary and emotionally charged spaces often inhabited by mystical people. She has been a finalist in the prestigious Parkin Drawing Award, the Miles Art Award, the Tasman Art Award and the Cleveland Art Award. More about the artists here.
