About The Artist

TATTS’ interest in new materialist theories informs the technique of assembling multiple porcelain tesserae or cut and refined ceramic tiles. The physicality of individual assemblage of tesserae creates abstract forms of balance and precarity, layers, stacks, pattern and negative spaces.

Using hyper focusing as a perceptive and making strategy, concentrating on the individual tesserae tile, Tatts considers their relationship and action with other objects and the surrounding environment. In late childhood Tatts was diagnosed with apophenia, a condition where the brain has the inclination to perceive patterns and connection in everyday object. Tatts has continued to develop not only technique but the action of evoking story and kinship between medium, artist and viewer.
