BA Painting, Wimbledon College of Art 2016
The imagery of Tahmina’s work is dictated by her medium. Unpredicatable surface textures created by newspaper, cooking oil and watercolour creates fortuitous images of silent domestic battles, uncanny figures floating in the sky and half animals half trees rolling around the hill.
Inspired by Neal Tait, Max Ernst and John Cage, Tahmina’s current work is a series of Landscapes that investigate the relationship and visual tension between people, animals and trees inhabiting a surreal playground.
