Tina Mammoser's proximity to the Yorkshire coastline is resulting in some incredible work. Her paintings are abstract, but clearly recognisable as landscapes and seascapes.
In her abstract landscapes, geological patterns are quietly immersed in colour. Juxtaposed with glazes of soft atmospheric paint layers, she uses drawing or collage to draft half-obscured strata of rock and cliff. She lays hints of the deeper time in our surroundings. Her take on a traditional landscape entwines ideas from the sublime artworks of 18th century exploration and the new sublime of modern science. Whether rover landscapes on Mars or the 100 million year-old cliffs surrounding Yorkshire, the artworks share a curiosity about time, land, and space within an aesthetically beautiful space.
Tina Mammoser was born in 1970 in Chicago. She grew up equally fascinated by math, art, science, writing, and music. She earned her British citizenship in 2012. In 2005 she began cycling and painting the English coastline, which prompted a return to university in 2010 for her sixth degree. She studied the coastal geology that is now a vital element of her artwork.
For over 20 years, Mammoser has been combining elements of abstraction with the science of her materials and subject matter. She works from her studio in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
