Tara Blackwell

Tara Blackwell is a visual artist from Stamford, CT. Tara grew up in a household filled with artists — both her parents and her older brother — in a home teeming with differing artistic visions and modalities. The early deaths of both her brother and father left her, a young painter, struggling to find her voice without her beloved mentors. In retrospect, processing these tragedies is what Tara, now a mature artist with a unique, exciting style, believes most accounts for the complexity and depth of her current work. Her abstract monochromatic schemes as well as bold, multi-colored compositions in which she employs layers and texture, elicit both profound emotion and a deep, healing calm reflecting Tara’s hope of inspiring others to find light and beauty amid the chaos of their own lives.
