Tara Douglas

Vines by Tara Douglas

Creating tactile forms from paper and card, Tara Douglas takes inspiration from her surroundings whether it is her home country of New Zealand or experiencing life in different cultures.

Carefully and obsessively created by hand using an incredibly labour-intensive process, Tara's sculptural works include creating immersive installations, sculptural works, and photographs. 

Much of Tara's work focuses on the expression of culture shock, influenced by life in Kumagaya, Japan in 2011. While in Japan Tara studied origami, paper making, and ikebana (flower arranging). Douglas' work has also been inspired by kawaii (Japanese cute culture), featuring the sakura blossom, and bright bold colours, to create uplifting environments. Her recent work explores concepts of resilience, positivity and escapism, in relation to life in Christchurch, New Zealand, post-earthquakes.
