ARTIST

I am inspired by natural imagery to create work that is beautiful and timeless; that is both familiar and mysterious at the same time; that evokes imagination, passion, and awe.  Through my art, I seek to uncover the deepest emotions in people and their interaction with the natural environment.

 

I took art classes in college, and after a career in investment banking, returned to my passion, sculpture.  I have worked in clay, wire mesh, bronze, and most recently, encaustic paint and paper sculpture.  Encaustic painting is an ancient Greek method that uses natural beeswaxes and damar resin.  The resin hardens the cooled wax and gives it a characteristic smooth, hard finish.  I paint on wood panels and include paper sculpture elements for added texture and depth.  My work has exhibited in several galleries in Westchester, Fairfield, and New York City, and in private collections in the Tri-State area.  I teach and practice at my studio in Rye, NY.  Exhibitions and Publications list below. 

Author Frank Matheis captures the essence of my art in his recent essay for the Hammond Museum – “Tambe’s works are reminiscent of mandalas, as much as they are physical – botanical and floral. Or, sea anemone marine creatures; or an exploding star in the vastness of the universe. Her abstract works are portals into your own boundlessly infinite imagination. Her informed aesthetic consciousness expresses pure joy.” (for the full article, see https://www.hammondmuseum.org/priya-tambe)
