Tara Costello

Tara creates abstract paintings that emulate the landscape using plaster, raw pigments, wax, ink and oil. Her palette has been called both “luscious” and” muddy-baroque”. The texture and reactions between the materials are as important as the resulting image. Her paintings reflect emotional experiences rather than specific places or times.

Costello’s abstract paintings are created layer by layer with spontaneity, compulsiveness and the raw physicality of mark making seeking to always discover beauty in the unexpected.

She runs her own business creating specialized wall treatments and murals residential and commercially. Her profession has influenced her artwork and she has developed a unique approach to the materials she uses.

Tara has been exhibiting and selling her work in Minneapolis since 1996 and has been a member of Rosalux Gallery since 2002.
