About Tania Blanchard
Burleigh Heads artist, Tania Blanchard, feels right at home in front of the canvas with a palette knife in her hand. She has long been a proud supporter of the local arts community and was once a gallery owner, holding many events and exhibitions for herself and other artists.
Leaning heavily into the philosophy of colour, Tania has honed her signature style that pushes colour variations to make people feel something. The perfectly placed accumulation of impasto dots creates a hypnotic depth and captivating emotion in her work.
2023 SWELL ARTWORK – The Pixel
Tania Blanchard’s sculpture is a nondescript large black cube that from a distance resembles a pixel removed from the landscape. For the curious, an opening at the back invites the viewer to peer inside. Tania challenges our assumptions and shows us how joy, colour and a little bit of magic reside within. This interactive piece takes the viewer by surprise as things aren’t always as they seem. Using her signature style inside, ‘The Pixel’, is a little outside the box.
