Tahnee’s paintings have there foundations in their immediate surroundings. The wall that is beneath them and the skirting board that runs below them. The view through the window and what happens beyond the curve of the curtain. Within these abstractions semi-real compositions are formed. Metaphorical characters suggest questions through narrative. Themes of faith and existence are juxtaposed against those of domesticity and feminism. A tug-of-war between two opposing forces. ‘A little bit of chaos. Then order. Chaos. Order. normally finishing in chaos.’

What results are semi abstract, staged scenes, where figures both hide and flaunt themselves to the viewer. As the viewer you are lead by these strangers through doors and windows and across the canvas, in the hope your questions will match with those of theirs, and you’ll play advocate to their beliefs.
