About the Artist

Vancouver-based Colette Tan is an abstract ethereal artist. Tan seeks to paint from the fourth dimension as well as from the depths of her being. She aims to restore the soul through the beauty of her art.Tan’s impressions of landscapes are spiritually inspired by musings on nature during her frequent road trips and hikes in British Columbia and Alberta. Her artwork is the unique expression of every stage of her life, telling a story with each piece. Her unrestricted and organic approach in her painting style aims to bring out the beauty from brokenness that can provide hope and transformation to the audience. Her paintings reflect a spontaneous expression of different forms and styles, some with layers, contrasting fine lines with broad brushstrokes, while others are with thick and fluid paint, reflecting both harsh depictions of human struggles and an indescribable beauty. Tan’s paintings have an ethereal quality that transports the viewer to a world of mystery.
