Tara McPherson Takes New Work in Fresh DirectionJuxtapoz // Saturday, 16 Jan 2010
Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor. As promised, Tara McPherson has taken her newest work in a fresh, edgy direction.
While chatting with Tara last month in Miami during Art Basel, Tara told us that her new work this year will explore myths, folktales, and stories from various cultures. In her widely publicized world book tour, Tara was able to travel from Germany to Brazil; Mexico City to France. 2009 was a year of travel for this Queen of Poster Art, and she plans on incorporating new colors, more males, and influential imagery she absorbed while exploring new cultures.
From a look at this fresh painting, Tara is well on her way. This piece is part of Dark Pop 2.0 at Last Rites Gallery in New York City.
