Tizta Berhanu explores humanity’s full spectrum of emotions in her figurative paintings. Narratives of love, intimacy, kinship, and motherhood flow across her gestural compositions. Bathed in swathes of jewel-like primary colours.
Her paintings are awash with lucid colours which flow across the canvases through the use of heavy undefined brush strokes.
By portraying her subjects expressing love, hate, sadness, and loneliness, the observer is invited into moments of vulnerability and intimacy.
