Pink Salt Lakes, 2017
Acrylic on linen
30 x 120 cm
Taking great inspiration from her travels between Darwin and Adelaide, a straight dissection through the Australian landscape, Tarisse paints the surreal and changing panorama of the salt lakes.
The intense, almost Pop Art pinks, in this series mirror the sunsets and sunrises over the salt lakes. The pink hues are created by the algae which inhabit these caustic but beautiful expanses of water. Tarisse then overlays the pink tones with soft metallic silver and pearl dots to mimic the salt crystals that crust upon the land during Dry Season. The clusters and lines she paints them in replicates the patterns blown into the salts by the ever enduring winds over the flat salt lake country. These painting emit an ambience of purity and beauty in finding such unique splendour in the seemingly simplest of landforms.
