TAHNEE LONSDALE

Tahnee Lonsdale is a painter of vibrant abstraction, using colour and intuitive paint application to explore notions of faith and religion, juxtaposed against more philosophical ideas of existence and being.  Her compositions are inspired as much by her surrounding as her personal beliefs.

Tahnee completed her Foundation and BA at Byam Shaw school of art in 2007. Her work has been exhibited in London and LA, and is part of collections in Singpore, Brazil, Taiwan, London and the US.

Tahnee has been shortlisted for a number of awards, making the final for 100 Painters of Tomorrow and shortlisted for The Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist Award at Whitechapel gallery.

In 2012 Roberta Moore Contemporary started to represent Tahnee and in 2013 showed her collection 'waiting for entry into that holy place' at Redchurch Street gallery. This collection garnered the attentions of Rebecca Wilson of Saatchi Art, who selected Tahnee as '12 artists to invest in now', Rebecca then went on to show a selection of Tahnee's works at The Saatchi Gallery, 'Continental Shift'. Most recently, Tahnee was nominated as a finalist for The National Open Art Competition and as a result has a piece hanging at Somerset House.
