About Tina Prates

I use the basic human form in storytelling. Trained as a fine artist and art educator, I’ve studied the links between the creative process, art therapy, and meditation practices. The links have informed my artistic exploration into stylized figurative art compositions. Applying a creative process of automatic drawing and abstract painting techniques, I select essential gestural lines, expressive values, and simplified forms allowing figurative images to emerge and perform within a theatrical space. My aim is to visually capture moments of revelation, struggle, and compassion that the viewer can connect with and contemplate.
