Chronology

Tasha Aulls
Born 1972

Aulls’ psycho-spiritual landscapes locate themselves somewhere between sensory perception and cultural constructs of wilderness. Trying to find a way out of dualistic perceptions of self vs. other and Nature vs. Culture, landscape becomes a site of passage from the material to the spiritual and back again. Landscape is depicted as a place of physical and material dissolution, and it’s images and symbols are in turn the psyches’ site of transcendence. Images act as a kind of interface between real space and psychic space. As part of the landscape we inhabit, they allow full passage for the psyche to venture into material space and vice -versa. The liquid and dissolving nature of the images, reflects their refusal to remain in any fixed state of being or closed ideology. The only constant is the persistence of an open-ended potential.

Having been offered her first solo show at p|m Gallery in Toronto, Tasha Aulls’s work has entered the collection of the Centre d’Art Contemporain de Baie Saint-Paul in Quebec and has been regularly exhibited at Toronto International Art Fair. Graduating from MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 2009, Aulls has since exhibited in South Korea, Austria, Canada and England.
