Dutch still life and culinary paintings using classical technique, by London-based artist Tanja Möderscheim
Tanja Möderscheim is a Dutch painter based in London. She paints still life paintings using classical technique and style. Her close attention to detail and anatomy in her Dutch still life paintings, driven by her background in science, is a nod to the renewed interest in taxonomy during the Dutch Golden Age.
She exhibits regularly in between commissions and working on projects (see news below). One such project celebrates culinary heritage and local food produce. As part of this project she collaborated with the BBC Food and Farming Awards and currently works with additional food producers to bring out the best of their artisan business in paint. These paintings will be exhibited together to celebrate artisan producers and their good, local food.
For her recent cultural heritage project she painted a series of Dutch historical tulips. Grown from bulbs in her garden, these are 16th, 17th and 18th century tulips, some of which featured in the tulipcrash of the 1630s. A newsletter showing some of these paintings can be seen here.
Key exhibitions include the Mall Galleries, London (RBA, SWA) and Affordable Art Fair (Otomys Gallery). Her work is also shown by Aubergine Art Gallery.
