Join us at The H. Club for a conversation with contemporary artist Tahnee Lonsdale. To coincide with the exhibition Tender Loin, this event is unique opportunity to hear the artist in conversation with curator and director of Dellasposa Gallery, Jessica McBride.
About Tahnee Lonsdale
Tahnee's paintings represent the newest direction in semi-abstract painting. Whimsical figures, architecture, and other objects populate vibrant fields of colour that suggest anything from domestic interiors to wild landscapes.
At once both detailed and dreamy, Lonsdale's work leaves just enough to the imagination. A narrative, often involving a journey of sorts, is clearly implied, though it is up to the viewer with the aid of Lonsdale's colourful titles, to piece together all the elements of the story being told. According to the artist, this body of work embodies an eternal searching, whether that be literally or on a spiritual level.
Tahnee Lonsdale holds a BA from the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. Since graduating in 2007, she has been short-listed for both the Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist Award and "100 Painters of Tomorrow." Her work has been exhibited widely in her native Britain, as well as enjoying solo exhibitions in LA, New York, and museums such as the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, CA. Lonsdale currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
