Artist Zara Tisma turns to art as a therapeutic escape; a form of meditation that helps her to declutter her mind and process emotions. Through her detailed drawings she explores the dialogue between nature and man-made environments, seeking to find a harmonious balance between both worlds. We speak about what inspired this exploration; how she overcomes challenges in her practice and how creativity affects her well-being.
In Sophia Pauley's bright, textural paintings, she takes inspiration from the urban environment; with shapes and lines stemming from architectural environments associated with water. Combined with her experience of moving through these spaces, she creates a sense of flow in her work. With the use of bright tones and different textures and mediums, Sophia hopes to energise viewers by the sense of movement within the works.
