Aljezur, Portugal, 2019/20
The series “Elements” by Tahis DZ presents nature’s imaginary landscapes, which, connected to their titles, take the viewer to a new way of looking. It is a journey to universes, such as the sea, space, the seasons and sensations that come along, are expressed through mixed techniques, full of textures, colours and details.
Influenced by the Portugal’s southwest coast, where she lives since 2018, Tahis brings in ‘Elements’, vibrant coloured abstract works, in a narrative of disassociation of form, as a recognised matter. Her search for abstraction and re-signification of elements, contemplates her internal search for simplicity and connection with the surroundings, while still maintaining its striking characteristics, such as the use of vibrant colours, textures, transparency in two dimensional mixed techniques.
