Made with recycled organic cotton, two pieces make up the series To End is to Start by artist Johanna Tagada. The works’ gently colored forms softly envelop and overlap each other on the page, as though engaged in a quiet communion. This subtle interaction of materials is further confounded by the title, suggesting an ambiguous end point, but also evoking a potential riddle—circularity; cut short, or not-yet-completed in orbit.
Johanna Tagada, b. 1990, Strasbourg, France, is a painter and interdisciplinary artist whose practice is built on her own daily meditations, expanding outwards to incorporate ecological observations and wider cultural theories. She lives and works in London, UK.
