Salt Sugar Poison: Paintings by Tara Costello
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 19, 2013, 6-9PM
Show Runs: October 19 - November 17, 2013
Opening at SooLOCAL (Our 3506 Nicollet Space) on Saturday October 19th, 2016, 6-9PM: Tara Costello’s Salt Sugar Poison, explores the malleability of perspective, subtle shifts in time merging to create geometric depictions of a singular point of place. Each painting functions as a map, a document of experience to vast landscapes both familiar yet unrecognizable, “The spaces are different snapshots of a day, a minute’s drive on the interstate, a set of lines in the sky.”
Costello’s paintings build up layers of Venetian plaster and pigment creating landscapes of raw precision. The works capture the synthesizing properties that churn under the surface of natures’ formations, with sharp intersections of bold controlled lines piercing across these chemical reactions.
Tara Costello lives and works in Minneapolis, she got her BFA at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and attended Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughn, Ireland. Costello has extensively showed in group exhibitions and was recently included in the CSA, Community Supported Art program at Springboard for the Arts. She is currently a part of the arts collective Rosalux Gallery.
