Drawn to the disappearing, illuminated, obscured and eerie, Tabitha Verbuyst oil works focus on a fleeting moment in everyday, the dreamlike memory of the otherwise past and forgotten. The enigmatic image with dramatic high contrast using vibrant palettes layered over and over again creates a richness and depth. This disassociates the viewer with the location and instead turns focus to the movement, vibrancy, emotion and beauty within that moment.
Verbuyst has attained a BFA degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and an Advance Diploma in Fine Art from Fanshawe College. She has participated in various solo and group shows including the annual Oxford Studio Tour, 2019 Visual Elements, Woodstock Art Gallery, Woodstock, 2017 Evanescent, Satellite Project, London and 2011 Sketchbook, The Arts Project. Verbuyst enjoys books with mystery and thrills, sketching beautifully dilapidated houses and anything that involves spending time with her family. Verbuyst practices and resides in Tillsonburg, Ontario, and is the Program Coordinator/ Curator of the Station Arts Centre Gallery.
