Tjasa Iris

Biography
Slovenian painter Tjasa Iris, (Formely Tjasa Demsar) was born in Kranj, Slovenia in 1968. Her studies were concentrated outside of Slovenia and from 1988 to 1991 she studied at Fortman Studios Florence (Italy), International School of Fine Art where she earned her diploma in painting and photography. After a short exchange program at the University of Staffordshire, England, she completed her artistic education at the Academie Minerva at Groningen, The Netherlands, initially concentrating her studies in the Audio/Visual department (photography, video, computer animation, painting) and later her Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting, her final chosen field of study. Tjasa Iris is an avid traveller and has resided in Venice for seven years and lived for two years in California (U.S.A.). A part from these extended residencies she has travelled extensively all over the world and has been invited to several Artist in Residency Programs, as four stays at Cite International des Art in Paris. These travels have allowed her to exhibit her artwork in many European, South African and American Galleries. Her paintings are now to be found in several public and private collections. As of 2004 she lives between Paris and Branik, where she works. She learnt seven languages, five of which she speaks fluently. Apart from her painting she also bought a big ancient family home in Branik, Precoastal Wine Country of Slovenia, about an hour from Venice in 2004. After the initial restoration she converted the villa into an Artist's Residency, where she runs annual Villa Flora Artist in Residency Program.
 
Statement
"I view my work as a continuation of the concerns of expressionism. Colour is the main concern in my paintings, exploring the emotional and expressive qualities. My colours are used freely and vibrantly. The paintings vibrate with the contrasts of warm and cold, light and dark, bright and dull. I am an avid traveller, and I capture the essence of the places I visit in vibrant abstracted pictures. Gardens with lush vegetation and ornaments, busy landscapes with swirling clouds, a coloured square of Burano island; Through my use of colour and shape I captivate the viewer with my joyful celebration of life through my art."
