Tzarev naturally engaged with clay to transcribe her paintings into three dimensional models. The flowers were subsequently cast in bronze and painted connecting further with her work. In recent years, scale has played an increasingly significant role in Tzarev’s pieces, enabling the artist to magnify the sculpted textural qualities of her paint. Flowers are brought to the forefront, each subject imbued with a sense of character and a subversion of traditional representations in art. Just as her oil paintings engage by extending into the viewing space from the surface of their canvases, her 3.5 m. giant flowers invite interaction from passers-by.
Tzarev’s artistic output is motivated by her belief that art can be used to create positive change in the world, fostering a universal experience of springing from nature and beauty.
