Piece description from the artist
Byron Bird Orchestration is an abstract expression that can be considered a synesthetic painting, where one can “hear” color, or “see” music. Here the magical music of natural wildlife is captured. In Byron Bay, Australia my husband and I sat and listened to the most amazing sounds in a forest by the beach. We couldn’t see any animals, but every moment was filled with layers of many kinds of birds, insects, a native “cuckaburrow”, and a mysterious low-pitched humming vibration. We both sketched the sounds together, letting our pencils echo the unique sounds we heard as they happened. Then I elaborated it into a detailed drawing and lastly this painting.
Tiffany Davis-Rustam loves to create colorful abstract paintings that conjur surrealistic expressions of emotion, and inspire deep connections to joy.
After studying Graphic Design at The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, Tiffany moved to New York City to create layouts for fashion magazines. When this didn't satisfy her creative passions, a trip around the globe and a move to Hawaii inspired fresh artistic in mixed media photography and abstract painting.
Soon a move to Los Angeles prompted her to run her own eco-savvy graphic design agency, creating award-winning publications and image branding. During this time she started doing and showing nature photography & digital imagery as a hobby, which soon became replaced by painting, as a way of creating with her hands more. She starting painting so passionately in the past 5 years, that she has decided to dedicate her future to full-time art creation.
Tiffany has shown paintings at a handful of galleries in the LA area, and most recently started showing in local juried art fairs this year, 2013.
