TAMA GREENBERG's Artist Statement
“My artwork (paintings and monotypes) is composed of 3 elements with varying emphases: texture, color, and image. My basic medium is acrylic paint. Texture comes from the paint application and collage. Imagery swings from cerebral landscapes to figurative to organic forms to abstraction. I combine predominantly bright colors with contrasting dark or muted tones to achieve a more complex effect, with transparent layers of unmixed paint used to create more intense colors. Color is very personal. I generally use colors that please me.
But I also approach art as a child, playing with color and shapes spontaneously, much like a large doodle, without a specific subject in mind.
Art to me is pure pleasure, the process being as important as the result.”
