© Tamsin Morse, 2020.
The paintings of Tamsin Morse depict moments of fragility and vulnerability in womanhood; teenagers in a state of liminality; a captured act reflecting failures and successes in juggling social expectations of femininity; pitfalls and confusion in the role of the modern woman. The paintings are composed from fractured drawings and poses from life and found images from which she forms composition and themes. The semi translucent paintings reflect the temporality of the subject matter by revealing the layers of underpainting.
