Tashi was born into a family where art and culture were important and had been important for generations. Tashi imbued an early appreciation of the arts from her immediate environment from as far back as she can remember. Poets and artists came and stayed for long periods doing family portraits and art. She remembers watching spellbound as they worked with brushes, knives and pallets. Her parents recognized her interest and inclination and encouraged her to paint. She has not looked back. Her work is a dialogue in contemporary times, a narrative that resonates a sense of precariousness that has come to signify our times. If anything, it challenges the sense of the immovable, the permanent. It embraces vulnerability & fragility. The focus shifts from the changes that are observable & felt to those that are often unacknowledged & immutable, a sense that the beliefs & certainties that defined our world have changed irrevocably.
