DEIDRE TAO FINE ART
contemporary new england landscape Painting
"Deidre Tao's paintings are an experiment in color and form, and her range in approach to depicting the layers of the landscape reveals a skillful understanding of her subject. Her use of line and rendering of light, reminiscent of American Barbizon paintings, clearly translate different moments of the day and year, resulting in works that convey a unique sense of place.
From windswept dunes and tranquil ponds, to dawn over a marsh and sunset over the land -- each of Deidre's renderings beautifully capture the spirit of her subject."
JESSICA ROSCIO, CURATOR, DANFORTH MUSEUM OF ART
"Deidre Tao's paintings transport me to a very positive, dreamlike place. Her skill with expressive color and decisive brushwork makes me feel as though I'm drawn into magical realms that are both here on Earth and also part of the landscape of my subconscious."
