Introspect | Tatiana Dobos

AMW Visual presents Introspect; a series of intimate and reflective sessions with some of Ireland’s most interesting creative minds.

“Originally from Moldova and now based in Galway, ceramicist Tatiana Dobos likes to dramatise human emotions in her terracotta and stoneware pieces, which emphasise the interaction of sentiments, shapes and colours.”
– The Irish Times

Dobos seeks to materialize in her works the mechanisms of the inner battles, at the same time exploring the anatomy of the aftermath. “There is a correlation between sentiments, shapes and colours” she considers. “I believe that balance and fulfilment bring to life circular and smooth shapes, while negativeness translates into sharp structures.”

Always observant of the organic textures and forms, she looks to create objects in complete harmony with the natural environment, where recurring clay elements represent the process of examining emotion. Using some of the most common types of clay like terracotta and stoneware and a traditional hand-building technique, she expresses her sensibility to simplicity and permanence.
