Tianna McIntosh is a practicing artist and recent graduate based in West Yorkshire, England. Working primarily in painting of the expanded form, her practice is firmly rooted in the process of automatic drawing.
Inspired by Surrealist sentiment, she completely veers away from figuration and subject matter, beginning each piece with no premeditation, being influenced solely by instinct, affect and a compulsive fascination with the exploration of automated processes.
Held central to her way of practicing is a belief in the art-making process being an inherently revelatory one. Through her dense, sporadic, and idiosyncratic mark making and her play with stream-of-consciousness text she is able to retrospectively examine and identify her anxieties, concerns, fixations, and preoccupations which all bear subconscious influence over the form and nature of her line.
