Artist Interview - Tamara Gonzales
I used to say "I make painting based installations." The installation work came about when I was invited to move one of my personal altars into a gallery space. These personal altars always started with setting up an environment for a painting. The act of futzing (is that a word?) with the painting, dressing it up, arranging it with other objects, moving it around, helped me look at, and ultimately finish the painting.
