Tara Good

Biography
Born: 1970 New Jersey, USA Tara Good lived across the United States and in the Dominican Republic, currently living in Sea Isle City, NJ. At the age of 15, Good won the Congressional Award for a photo-realistic drawing that was featured in the United States Capitol Building for one year. She has studied at Parson's in NYC, The California College of the Arts and Crafts in Oakland, Ca and at Altos De Chavon in the Dominican Republic. Good was one of The Top Five to Collect in Savannah, Ga. and continued to win numerous awards for her work when she lived down South. Then she moved back to New Jersey and had her work in several TV shows & movies. After relocating, serious health issues plagued Good. Still, Good continues to paint graffiti on a textured wall focusing her lens on how mankind has impacted nature's environment. Using acrylic, mica, watercolors, gouache, ink, and century old bits of text & images, Good focuses her lens on what is "ugly beautiful" in our ever changing modern world by utilizing her camera, computer, and printing stencils that are then hand cut, by the artist, and finally incorporated into her paintings. As of 2021, Good's work can be seen throughout the South Jersey Shore in numerous restaurants and stores. She has expanded her work using the ancient way of painting with encaustic wax and cold wax. Handmade tissue paper is incorporated into her body of work, as well as custom ordered tissues. Her expansive knowledge of combining pigments, mica, and glass into her wax recipe creates unique colors and interesting surfaces. Good continues to focus on the environment around her, the coastline and the environment.
 
Statement
After children, battling leukemia, and living with crippling health issues, I still create work and explore new mediums. I say "new," but encaustic wax has been around since the 5th century. Ive created a mixture of beeswax, resin, and other hardeners that will encapsulate the materials I either create or find. This will preserve the work. The dichotomy of the ever changing environment, frozen in wax, to last forever. My work is meant to haunt the viewer, with memories of summers long gone bye. I want the viewer to create their own story, for each piece. The work is a mirror to the viewer's experience.
