to music is the source of my inspiration. For many years I have studied and the passing of the seasons. I have spent much time in the mountains observing the wide landscape from great heights, surrounded by thousands of miles of pure air far removed from urban life. I began to see a mass of details and analysed how, from apparent chaos, a structure emerges. These elements are reflected in my paintings.â€™
COLLECTIONS: Morgan Stanley. Ted Baker. One Aldwych Hotel. Private collections in Europe and America.
Tania Rutlands immaculate and considered paintings use the composition and patterns of cloth to explore her attitudes to life and its intricate contradictions. In the weft and the weave she discovers small imperfections which she translates into sublime patterns which the viewer is able to translate and absorb in to a bigger picture.

‘My artistic practice has been profoundly influenced by exposure to two vastly different environments. Firstly, growing up with minimal art and modern architecture, which gave me the visual language of reduced and economical form and a fascination with systems, repetition and order. Secondly, the regular witnessing of the raw power of the East Anglian coastline. This presented chaos giving me an awareness of natural laws and an interest in physical matter. I have developed many processes for creating my work through years of experimenting. I uses geological materials collected from the landscape including quarries. The creative process begins by preparing the material by grinding it down or through meticulously separating it out. Using a variety of techniques this ‘matter’ is then applied onto an armature. Layer upon layer are built up forming permanent and textural surfaces. Through my work I seek to reach a combination of ingredients, aiming for a point of tension and harmony where a frisson occurs.’
