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 culinary and still life paintings using techniques common in 17th-Century Holland. 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 (2016) and currently works with additional food producers to bring out the best of their business in paint. These paintings will be exhibited together to celebrate artisan producers and their good, local food.
Key exhibitions include the Mall Galleries, London (RBA, SWA) and Affordable Art Fair. Some of her work is represented by Otomys Galleries and Aubergine Art Gallery. Tanja also teaches privately.
