Piece description from the artist
You just can’t make too many demands of a wild heart; it will follow it’s own rhythm to the ends of the earth. This painting is completely abstract and spontaneous in it’s origin, inspired heavily by the nonobjective art of Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and a host of Expressionist painters. Still as I explored this painting further, the image of a human heart appeared to be throbbing there on the canvas, with the sharp triangular points appearing at the sides to stab it, and long strips of ribbons trying to cover and contain it.
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.
