First Coat Mural 2014

This wall painting was Tarn's contribution to the the 2014 First Coat Festival. Coming from a practice concerned with Geometric Abstraction and Monochrome Painting, Tarn also explores painting and space changing away from the picture frame. This work focuses on the negation of representation, allowing monochromatic fields of colour to contribute to the city scape.
