Painting

Tak, Carla

About the artist
Carla Tak, is a prolific and well listed artist who is largely self-taught. She lives in Vancouver, BC Canada where she spends each day painting in her studio, creating abstract works on canvas and panel that reveal a fluidity of movement and layering that are characteristic of her style of painting. Carla left home and school at the age of 15 and so began a lifetime of experiences that ultimately became her greatest teachers. As an artist, the act of painting while staying true to her personal process is what is important to her. She defines this process as a felt state that involves suspending her logical voice and allowing an intuitive self to guide her. This results in rare paintings that express intensity and unencumbered honesty. “I do not interpret my work nor do I make use of titles. I prefer to allow the viewer to be unburdened by textual limitations and to similarly engage their intuitive selves to develop their own interpretation. Carla Tak is represented by Colin Fisher Studios in California. Her works are held in collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.
