@ BACKSTREET : November's Featured Artist is Tamarah Phillips with her debut show "Chromatic Garden"

Backstreet’s new member, Tamarah Phillips, will debut her first show, “Chromatic Garden”, in November. Her reception takes place on November 8th, from 3 to 5PM at Backstreet Gallery, 1421 Bay Street.

With a very distinctive style enveloped in linear designs, organic shapes and vibrant colors, she captures her subject in an other-worldly fantasy. Perhaps having a seamstress for a mother who surrounded Tamarah with fabrics, textures and patterns gave impetus to her captivating, and as she calls it, intuitive work.
