ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

 

Tara Bach is a Contemporary Abstract Artist from upstate NY. She was born in Kingston, New York in 1992. Tara found beauty and  joy in the freedom of her abstract painting process, dabbling in the unknown and limiting control. Color and movement take over her canvas and create luminous, enchanting works. Each painting of hers is completely original, made from her own unique painting process that she has slowly developed over the past few years.

Tara finds her inspiration in nature and the universe. Weather it be the calm and peacefulness of the ever changing tide, the powerfulness of the storm or the wonders of the galaxies unknown. The changing elements  resonate with her and reminds her of life and its uncertainties

 

"NOTHING IN THIS WORLD REMAINS THE SAME,
I'M NOT EVEN THE SAME PERSON I WAS JUST YESTERDAY."

- TARA BACH

 

Tara's work has been exhibited in various New York Galleries. Her Paintings have even sold and collected internationally as well as around the United States. 

 

 

Three poems were created in response to this artwork:

 

LOST AT SEA

 

Why is my compass spinning in circles?

Why is the fog so thick?

Why is the ocean so silent?

Why are there no waves lapping at my hull?

Why do I only smell salt air? no pines, no honeysuckle, no lilacs?

Why are my crew members asleep below?

Why do they snore while I shiver and shake?

Why can’t I see land, the stars, the moon, the ocean?

Why don’t I feel the breath of the wind in my sails, across the deck, through my hair?

Why are my feet frozen to the cockpit floor? my hands grasping the tiller tight?

Why am I so frightened?  I am lost at sea.

I open my eyes.  I see the colors of life before me...red, aqua, black, orange, peach.

They bubble and merge and streak across the glass.

I am awake.  I am alive.  I am still lost at sea.

LOST AT SEA

 

We commit so many 

to the deep, to be turned 

into corruption, but look 

towards that day when 

the sea shall give up 

her dead again...

 

Sea is a she and with her 

so often days can be angry.

It takes so little 

to turn wavelets

into tumult, to turn 

a placid face into 

angry breakers. 

 

Happens so fast, in a gurgle, 

when the sad, solitary swimmer, 

against all red flags 

and maritime warnings, 

stumbles and falls far out 

in the murky undertow 

and does not resurface 

to the light. 

 

O Lusitania sunk 

off the coast of the Old Head 

of Kinsale, O Titanic found 

in pieces in the North Atlantic 

near Newfoundland.  

All ships and souls, 

embers of so many hearts, 

gone, gone, gone 

down into the darkness 

of the sea, sobbing, 

sopping, silent, drowned.

LOST AT SEA

 

An explosion of

blues, greens, and reds

as she splashes and plunges

through the coral

and dense jungle of sea plants

her powerful tail

smacks the sea bed

in angry frustration

which sends sea glass

and shells bursting around her

the mermaid yearns

to find her way home

where the sea is colder

and untamed

like her spirit!
