Despite being an abstract painter, Tanja Babic claims that she
“never fled from the forms that were born in a rational way.”
Her compositions are everything but figurative, each nebulous streak of colour melting into the next, but as she describes, they’re not anti-representational.
Although the formless shapes don’t clearly depict any given thing, they shift and transform under the viewer’s gaze in a way that emulates a landscape, a seascape, or a thing that’s still subject to gravity.
Her paintings are a striking visual balance. This detail—and her bold, rounded, legible signature—keep the abstract piece feeling level and grounded.
