MAP Presentation 2021 Winter Series: Larissa Tiggelers twofold

Larissa Tiggelers' artistic process embraces introspection and withdrawal from external concerns. By disregarding conventional colour theory's efforts to standardize and rationalize colour, she refuses to present tonal assurances. Instead, her paintings affirm colour's perplexity and vitality. Tiggelers' paintings are duplicity formal and misleadingly flat, but through slow and sustained looking, their spatial ambiguity unfolds into perceptual richness. Her abstract work rejects traditional indicators of painterly authorship. Through limiting evidence of the brush strokes her paintings accumulate soft surfaces and offer spaces of care and contemplation.

Larissa Tiggelers holds an MFA from the University of Guelph and a BFA with distinction from the Alberta University of the Arts. Prior to beginning her graduate studies, she served in a number of positions within Calgary-based artist-run centres, culminating her service in 2015 as the Director of Stride Gallery. Since completing her graduate studies in 2017 she has worked as a sessional instructor. In July 2020, she began an Assistant Professor position in the Visual Arts Department at the University of Regina. Tiggelers' work has been exhibited at Jarvis Hall Gallery (Calgary), Christie Contemporary (Toronto), Erin Stump Projects (Toronto), Galerie D'Este (Montréal), The Bakery (Vancouver) and Paniki Gallery (Población Batan, Philippines).
