"Navigating between my shadow self and full of light, movement and energy forms, I am interested in the magic of storytelling that engages conversations and evokes emotions." - Tiffanie Delune
Tiffanie Delune is a Paris-born visual artist of French, Belgo-Congolese heritage, living in Lisbon, Portugal. Expanding from an initial focus on personal trauma and childhood experiences, her multi-media practice is instinctively embarking on a wondering wandering. She weaves apparitions in dreams and travel recollections with symbols of her mixed-race family, hints of femininity and flux of spirituality. Navigating between her shadow self and full of light, movement and energy forms, Tiffanie isinterested in the magic of storytelling that engages conversations and evokes emotions.
Approaching her work with playfulness and an intuitive curiosity, she creates multilayered pieces on cotton canvas, loose linen and smaller pieces of paper; inviting for a dialogue between the scale and the subject. Letting go of any inhibitions in the choice of materials, she longs for textures, meanings and a sense of memory from acrylic, pastels and papers to glitter, threads, loo roll, keys, bags and dried flowers. In a conflicted world that feels deeply saturated, she puts a special emphasis on sharing a blended, unfiltered narrative in all its depth and authenticity.
