For painter Tara Mulder, painting is all about the layers. Layers of color and texture built up into a gloriously pied beauty at once harmonious and chaotic. Each work starts with a visual inspiration— a dusting of green vegetation over rocky soil, glistening roasted beet flesh under its own charred skin, patina on battered metal, snow on bark against sky— and then takes on a life of its own as each layer influences the next. The inspiration might carry through to the final layer, or it might just be a luscious glint in the substrata that catches your eye and beckons you across the room.
