    Tara Walters: Ruritania
    Antenna Space is pleased to announce Tara Walters’s first solo exhibition in China, Ruritania, which will open on May 24, 2024 and run through July 18, 2024. A musical performance as Faeryteeth will take place on the day of the opening by the artist at 6 p.m..Tara Walters blends paint with the water of the Pacific Ocean. Tara Walters’ paintings have a dreamlike quality that may be related to her tendency for bright colors to punctuate lovely flora and fauna, and natural landscapes too. The rebellion of utilizing unprimed canvases allows the softness and gentleness to saturate the canvas and then permeate everyone’s mind, creating surrealistic visions. Walters informally refers to this misty and ethereal body of work as her “future-telling paintings”, a gentle visual reminder that images are of the soul and spirit rather than of the earth. By building a gateway to the realm of consciousness, Walters believes that art can, in some moments, give space to place the doubts needed to believe in something intangible and metaphysical.

    “Ruritania” originates from a fictional country in Anthony Hope(1863-1933)’s novel, the way Tara sees it, “Ruritania” is a visional world ask her to render it. The following conversation comes from a meeting between Tara Walters and Malibu Shaman Stoyana P. C. Ht. about the exhibition, retracing the artist’s intimate spiritual connection with medium and her works under the guidance of tarot.
