 Light Affectable Art

In twilight all colours grey ‑ or so they say. Black is not a colour, it is the absorption of Light. White is the reflection of Light. Therefore colour is not a characteristic of paint; the impression of colour is a product from paint pigment together with Light, absorbed and reflected according to its spectrum. As a result, any picture can be made " alive " by shining Light with various spectra on it. One of the strongest effects is the combination from fluorescent paint with ultraviolet Light ( blacklight ). When it shines on the fluorescent image, the Light is reflected using a higher frequency. The resulting intensive glow creates a magical atmosphere.

This effect is a " live " effect. One cannot photograph fluorescence. The intensity of the Light is visible on a photo, but the ability to reflect the Light on a higher frequency is essential for the element fluor.The same effect can be obtained by using x‑rays and fluorescent pigments. Also phosphorescent pigments glow under a blacklight, but they have the additional characteristic of reflecting Light after the Light source has been turned off ‑ " The Glow in the Dark Effect ".

Light Affectable Art plays with all kinds of Light sources and corresponding pigments. Coloured Light, Black light, projections and daylight are used to illuminate images and installations. The observer is drawn into a magical atmosphere through the interplay of picture and Light.

Aboriginal painting techniques can be discerned in Tanja's figurative abstract forms, as well Celtic and African motifs influence her work. Light giving lines and points involve the observer more closely and intensively into, the picture. Since 1991 Tanja's decorations and installations are evidence of a new direction: Light Affectable Art.

 

Biography

 I am born in november 1963 in Wuppertal, Germany. After the Gymnasium I travelled through Europe. 1989 I settled in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Here I am living now since over 20 years in the Westerpark. I am an autodidact.

My early work are Fotocollages. In the period from 1982 till 1993 about a hunderd different Fotocollages were designed.The Fotocollage was for her the best medium to reflect present times. In Amsterdam I had my first exhibition in 1993 in the ABN Amro Bank.

That was very motivating.


From 1992 on I discovered colour. I love colour and I love to play with Light,which illuminates the pigments I used. From 1992 on I started painting. Trusting my talent a smal company inspired me to paint big sized decoration work.

In this time I produced art/decor work - paperrolls from 150 cm x 1000 cm. As you can see in the list my artistic paperrolls were exhibit on a lot of places. With years my work got smaler meaning size, the materials different and the tecniques extended.


In the time of computers the creativity gets other forms. From documenting my artwork and presenting it on the internet it was a smal step to start digital fotography and website design. So my foto collages ( first works) come back to me in a loop with a new outfit.


Besides this I developed my own " kitchen art ". I became mother of two girls and the kitchen seemed with all the materials ( ingredenties ) to inspire me to work with them. From all seeds like beans and peas but as well rice and nudels and dried herbs

I created mandalas and figurative work. Champagne and wine boxes I changed into magical artwork.


These are my three legs of art work and I hope you enjoy it!
