Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 25

Tara Nix also known as "Jinx" in contemporary works is a Toronto-based visual artist who specializes in painting and mixed media. Before attending Sheridan College for the Visual and Creative Arts program she also received her BA from the University of Ottawa in General Arts and Art History. Her diverse, raw, and sensational style challenges the constraints of aesthetics through landscapes, graffiti, mixed media, pop art, and experimentation. Her art is designed to produce a voyeur experience that conveys the atmosphere of the diverging locations and settings she portrays. Influenced by the functionality of light and color in art she constructs visual spectacles that engage and entertain its viewer.

The focus series was developed by the influence of bokeh photography. Tara began painting landscapes in impressionism but aimed to challenge herself by shifting her landscape style towards abstraction. By developing compositions that are based on out of focus points of view and capturing natures ‘color swatches' using bokeh patterns and shades. Using the overlaying circles in bokeh to recreate the softened out of focus points of light. Painting with acrylic open paints and matte medium to disrupt the opacity and saturation while capturing the excitement, and atmosphere of the environments depicted.
