- Information & Contact -



Tansey's paintings are autobiographical and self reflective, drawing upon existence, experience, memory and sentiency to express largely emotive responses through the use of vaguely identifiable elements, forms and motifs. 
Tansey's paintings are also an exploration of the 'isness' of the materials used and their intrinsic nature, characteristics and qualities. 
Questioning, meaning and understanding are very much part of his creative process.
