Inspiration:

I HEART TARA competition

Tara Book

Inspired by stars, planets, bubbles and girls, Tara McPherson‘s art is distinctly appealing to vinyl toy collectors, art lovers and poster enthusiasts amongst many.

That’s why her second book Lost Constellations – featuring all her recent outer world paintings really needed a European tour!

We caught up with Tara on the 2nd date of her tour in manchester this weekend at the Richard Goodall gallery. There was a fantastic array of work on display from stickers, screenprinted posters, art prints and her ‘Gamma Mutant Space Friend’ toys to my favourite – Cushions! Yes! And she was an exceptionally inspiring lady to boot.

      Tara, you are beautiful and so is your artwork, it really speaks to me and inspires me. I suffer from a chronic pain condition (fibromyalgia) and engaging in artwork is one of the only times i can feel free and release my pain. And your work has inspired this within me. You are awesome! much love and aloha from Hawaii.
