Tara Centybear- Original Artwork
Tara Centybear’s Blingy Bugs are fanciful symbols of human adaptability and personal resilience. Each creature carries different items on their back like a whimsical pack mule. These hyper-realistic hardy bugs are rendered in watercolor on paper using photographs as source material. These miniature beasts are depicted in motion giving them a life-like stance and nodding to the adventure they are on. Many layers of pigment are used to create the exact textures and patterns of each insect grounded in its world by a subtle shadow. Pyrite stones, associated with the third eye chakra representing abundance and success, are hand-stitched into the paper giving the works a three-dimensional heft. Tara then adds other collaged elements on top of these crystal-cluster-bearing beings to illustrate their unique journey and story. These colorful Blingy Bugs portray strong, even jubilant, emotional landscapes that defy their seemingly heavy burdens.
