About My Business:


Tanja Moderscheim, London, I paint still life, the figure and landscapes in oil. Staying true to my Dutch roots and in admiration of the 17th-century Dutch still life Masters Claesz. and Coorte, I paint my still lifes using academic technique. Painting in glazes built on a grisaille and using classical lighting, the paintings have a glowing quality. The objects are rendered in detail. As the main aim, the still lifes convey a sense of calm through the use of ample space, harmony, and simple, strong colour schemes. Like the still lifes, my landscapes convey a sense of space. Also built on a grisaille layer and subsequent glazes, these glowing paintings often feature masses of clouds, reminiscent of the landscapes of the Van Ruysdaels. Subject matter is taken from sketches made while travelling, other paintings are developed during plein-air sessions. My figurative work expresses the gracefulness of the female body. The paintings focus on anatomy as well as the aesthetic quality of the model's gesture. These paintings are developed from work produced at local life drawing sessions where the models hold five to ten-minute poses. I participate in 4-5 exhibitions a year in London and the south of England.
