"An imprint of duration"

Tangie Pape Belmore...

was born in Portland, Oregon. She lives on sixteen acres in Sherwood, Oregon where her studio overlooks the surrounding wetlands.

I strive to create compelling images that will engage and encourage the viewer to examine and reexamine the complexity of the surface and the underlying layers. Each painting contains memories and histories, spirituality, personal growth and positive energy. I rely on my feelings and intuition to allow each painting to evolve.

Strong, simple forms, texture, transparent layers, playfulness, unusual juxtapositions, beauty, enchantment, a bold maneuver, opposites, fearsome attitude, open space, dreams. Self expression is the most important element of each painting.

The challenge is to please and surprise myself and continue to grow as an artist. Some days are frustrating with no sense of progress; other days are extraordinary, and painting arrives like a gift.
