Tiffany Bozic is an incredible artist that Talon Gallery have admired for many years.
Her series, The Five Elements of Nature, is explained in her own words below:
"On one of my burrowing adventures inside the dusty pages of online web searching, I read Sacred Geometry is proof of a holographic universe and connecting with Sacred Geometry is said to wake up the sleeping memory of our true, infinite selves. What does that even mean? I asked myself, well then, what would an atheist’s meditation on sacred imagery look like?
I chose characters to depict narratives that metaphorically explored common universal themes such as renewal, the struggle to survive, hope and fear, searching for origin and self identity. I also wanted to play with reality and bend the rules of nature into a surreal space of imagination and possibility, building my own version of a holographic universe.
For the geometric framework I referenced back to the ancient ideas around the five elements of nature, and the Platonic solids. Each of the following paintings correlate with the 5 elements of Nature stated by Pluto, that of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Easther (Spirit/Metaphysical).
One of my goals with this project was also to celebrate some of the local endemic species that I share my home with on the Pacific North West coast (Marin, CA). I also tried to challenge myself to paint a wide variety of different natural textures, like water that freezes mid-air, tunnels systems carved out of rock and sand, glowing flame, sparkling beetle shells, soft fur etc."
