“My name is Adrianne Tamar Arachne, and I am a Colorado-based artist who works in many mediums, but mostly in the medium of oil paint. My work pulls fantastical concepts, bioluminescent creatures, and surreal dimensions from the ethers. My unique style is a merging of strong technical abilities, a deep sense of magic, and a spiritual relationship with the earth. I approach my work with intensity, and form a complex magical connection with each piece.. which brings them to life through the nature of that connection.
My art is an exploration of the intersection of the human and more-than-human worlds through remembering the lost magic of our interconnection. My art has always been the place where I explore the way I experience the magic of spirit: the spirit of other humans, the spirit of the earth around me, and the spirit of my personal relationship to our interconnection. This exploration has led me down a path of painting symbolic portraits of both human and more-than-human life. It is through this process of discovering and communicating symbolic imagery that I am constantly reminded of a deep truth: No matter who we are or where we’ve come from – we each carry a medicine in our story. For me, these stories are best told through art.
I am elated to have the opportunity to come to Natthagen, and to share, learn, listen, connect, and create from the stories I find there.”
