About Audra T.
I am Audra T., an emerging abstract artist and an ex-civil servant trained in anthropology. I practice a form of inverse intuitive archeology in my work. This means I explore and examine various patterns, colours and surfaces when I paint. My mission is to inspire and invoke a sense of curiosity and wonder in the observer by creating artwork that begs to be touched.
For instance, I craft the everyday organic or industrial into the overall expression of my paintings. I believe art is a manifestation of our curiosity about the material world, and as such, an essential part of what it is to be human. Our ideas, thoughts and feelings are transmitted through art. As a result, viewers of art experience, interpret and relate to what is being communicated through the texture of that work, whether it is visual or physical.
I live and paint in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Canada.
