"The subjects and inspirations that drive my compositions are taken from my own personal experiences and surroundings. Most of the featured elements for this body of work come from either the redwood forest that surrounds my California home, or from exploring countries as far off as Papua New Guinea and the Galápagos on scientific surveys, alongside my scientist husband. Generally casting animals as the stars in my paintings, I search for universal struggles, emotions, questions, depicted through allegorical metaphor. My work contains multiple fictional and surreal threads, with visual elements chosen for both narrative and emotional resonance." — Tiffany Bozic

Tiffany Bozic is a self-taught California artist whose work has been described as 'like Audubon on acid'. Her work evokes the tradition of tightly rendered Nature illustration, which she explodes with highly emotional, surreal metaphors. Not so much departing from reality as articulating it more deeply, Bozic makes paintings in which a faun can simultaneously be alive and dead. A population of blackbirds become as one in a perfect sphere of black oil. As Nature is ever more subjugated by human impacts, Bozic corrects the balance sheet. She establishes inescapable chains of consequence among the myriad species whose interactions create the world. The work is beautiful, celebratory, but it can also be quite difficult. The complexities of natural processes like death and decomposition percolate through pictures of otherwise shining life. Painting on masked and stained maple panels with watered-down acrylic, Bozic summons the grain of the wood into her compositions. With her ornithologist husband and school-aged daughter, she spends significant time in wild places, the rhythms of which are evident in her vision. The subject of several solo exhibitions and included in many group shows across the country, Bozic is in the forefront of artists today redefining the aesthetics and imperatives of global change. Her work has been collected in two books, both published by Gingko Press: Drawn by Instinct (2012) and Unnatural Selections (2018).

Tiffany Bozic's painting 'Buzz' features on the cover of Resurgence & Ecologist Issue 321.
