About Tiffany Barber: «I am a Scottish Graduate Artist based in Brighton, England. I studied at Edinburgh College of Art participating in a 4 year Painting BA(Hons) Degree and a study exchange at the Hungarian University of Fine Art in Budapest, Hungary. I graduated in July 2016 and have since continued pursuing my artistic career. Within my practice I mainly engage with imagery that is both ambiguous and provocative. I turn the focus towards the viewer, highlighting aspects of their preconceptions in order to ultimately provoke a dialogue concerning the field of ideas raised by each artworks subject. The compositions I create are designed to perceive an image of obscurity. I am currently focusing on the fusion of classism with contemporary to evoke reaction by conceptually and visually communicating current social issues. I have previously demonstrated this through the use of the female form in combination with various intricate textures and details. I am continuing to create oil paintings of sculptural masterpieces from renaissances onwards connecting us to the past and what lies ahead of us.»

Original oil paintings are pieces of art created by an artist using oil paints on canvas or other surfaces. Oil painting has been a popular medium for artists for centuries because of its versatility, durability, and vibrant color saturation.
To create an original oil painting, an artist typically begins by sketching out their composition on canvas or another surface. They then apply layers of oil paint, building up the colors and textures to create the desired effect. Oil paints can be manipulated in various ways, such as blending, layering, or glazing, allowing artists to create a wide range of styles and effects.
Oil paintings can take weeks or even months to complete, depending on the complexity of the composition and the drying time of the paint. Once the painting is finished, it is typically varnished to protect the surface and bring out the colors.
Original oil paintings are highly valued by collectors and art enthusiasts for their beauty, craftsmanship, and historical significance. They can range in size, style, and subject matter, from realistic landscapes and portraits to abstract or impressionistic works.
If you’re interested in purchasing an original oil painting, it’s important to do your research and choose a reputable art dealer or gallery. You may also want to consider working with an art consultant who can help guide you through the process of selecting and acquiring a piece of art that fits your budget and aesthetic preferences.
