About The Artwork

This painting came forth from reflecting on the experience of the awareness of the space between our thoughts and feelings, which some refer to as the depth of our beings. It is in this awareness that we may feel our connection to what has sacred meaning. There is spaciousness in this awareness, a sense of rising above worries and divisiveness, and moving through our inner landscapes with buoyancy. In the midst of these unusual times we may choose upliftment. Let us demonstrate to the future that we chose to be generous, empathic and compassionate with each other and with ourselves, to rise above fear and anxiety, and create more and more individual and collective well-being. High quality archival oil paints were used to create this artwork. The sides of the painting are white, and the work is wired and ready to hang. Each painting is varnished to protect the work from UV light and dust. The artwork is signed and you will receive a certificate of authenticity with purchase.

Tamara English is a contemporary artist whose work explores themes of awakening to the presence of the divine, and nature as a catalyst for discovering the sacred in life. Her work reveals the interior realms of our beings, the levels of awareness beyond the physical. Most wisdom traditions speak about the existence of these different levels which include the subtle and causal realms. These realms are where our beliefs, perceptions and inquiry and understanding of what has sacred meaning to us are found. English blends imaginary elements with elements found in the physical world to create an atmosphere that expands our perception of reality, which she refers to as the reenchantment of the world. Her work reveals the vastness and beauty of an inner life in which one is connected to their divine ideal, beyond any specific tradition or belief system. Each painting may be considered a portal to discover the magical, mystical and alchemical in everyday life, well-being and upliftment, and that all is imbued with Spirit. Tamara English’s work has been exhibited extensively in the US and abroad, including at the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Seattle Art Museum. She holds a BFA in painting from Pacific Northwest College of Art, where she received the Charles Carey Life Drawing Prize. She has been awarded several grants from the Regional Arts & Culture Council in Portland. In 2018, English was named a recipient of the Ford Family Foundation Oregon Visual Artist Mid-career Residency Award, and was awarded a Golden Spot artist residency at Playa Summerlake in Oregon. Her work is widely collected and represented in many collections, including the City of Portland Portable Works, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Cascade AIDS Project Office in Portland, Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania, Columbia Sportswear Headquarters, and a former US president. English lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
