Georgia’s Giant:

The North Atlantic Right Whale


The first collection below is from the group show “Georgia’s Giant: The North Atlantic Right Whale”. This collection of ink works was created as part of a larger series of events for Oceana to raise awareness for the North Atlantic Right Whale.

Artist Statement

For the “Ecosystem” series, Tara showcased the diversity of ink; how it can be used for fine, delicate, precise details but also loose, uncontrolled, fluid work. The absence of color, is also purposeful to remind the viewer that all life is unified. The narrative of “Ecosystem” is that “No Man is An Island”. We are part of a complex environment. Who we are is because of our environment and the beings that inhabit it. Positive or negative, what we do has an effect and other living beings.
