Pleasantly surprised by the Daily Heller this morning. Loved the post on Tamar Cohen so much, I’m spreading the word.
Tamar’s self-proclaimed fascination with polka dots and vintage paper ephemera has introduced the rest of the world to her spectacular creations. Her work is filled with screen-printed polka dots mixed with pages from old books and advertisements. “This palette of visual obsessions inspires me in many ways, as I explore the relationship between high and low, order and chaos, the abstracted and the everyday. I also strive to push and challenge the boundaries of conventional printmaking: I paint with paper,” she says.
And my favorite part of her statement?
“Like the varied uneven edges of my work, interpretation is best when not limited by four corners.”
