Imagine what Ocean would look like as a Human. How would she move and exist? How would she respond to her guardian? “OCEAN AS A HUMAN II is the second exhibition at Redcliffe that local artist, Tania Geyer has produced with an ecological inspired theme.
Tania’s work has at it’s a core a desire to stimulate the public to view the ocean’s vulnerability and meaning. In the time since Tania’s solo art exhibition Ocean as a Human I, at Redcliffe two years ago, an overabundance of information in the media has spilled into our daily lives about the plight of our earth’s water.
Tania sees the complex curse of society’s addiction to the “new and shiny” and “packaged” product as the disease of which we are aware, but slowly dying of. In Ocean as a Human II the contradiction between commerce and ecology is explored; humanity’s influence will be symbolic in colour and Ocean will remain a visual monochromatic response.
Tania is an artist with a difference. She loves to feel the spiritual connection in all her work. Her work is slow, energetic and thoughtful. There is no need for vast dialogue. She wants the viewer to feel something, to be moved and to come away at the end of the day somehow changed, by witnessing the power of art. She wants initial whispers to stimulate deeper thinking and respect for the environmental statement her work evokes. She wants the viewer to her works to leave feeling hopeful.
