Tizta Berhanu explores humanity’s full spectrum of emotions in her figurative paintings. Narratives of love, intimacy, kinship, and motherhood flow across her gestural compositions. Bathed in swathes of jewel-like primary colours, Tizta’s figures are painted with expressive brushstrokes, often weaved into layers of the canvas’ abstract background. Interlaced in each other’s embrace, her figures express the beauty of human touch.
Synthesis of Souls is guest curated by Claudia Cheng, who is an independent art advisor and curator based between London and Hong Kong.
