Welcome to the portfolio of Tara Gupta (RISD BFA 2019), a research-based Artist based in the Washington D.C. area.
My artistic practice describes the journey of human experience through surreal, dreamscape narratives. I aim to create playful, unreal visuals that help the viewer sink deeply into a piece. Much of my inspiration is derived from difficult or unusual emotional scenarios. I depict bliss and play, friendship, self-contemplation, pain and hardship, and triumph. I use animals, human figures, and the land, depicted simply and colorfully, to give a straightforward immediate message that then becomes more complex upon a second or third look.
