Tin Odescalchi is very much an artist who has always painted her immediate day to day life and surroundings, be it people, horses or the landscape. Married and with two children, Tin lives in Somerset.
Tin trained at Gloucestershire College of Art in the 1980’s and later under Rudolph Hausner at the Vienna Academie. She has exhibited in many notable locations in London, USA and Hong Kong as well as the provinces and Scotland.
Working with great immediacy direct from the subject with bold mark-making, Tin’s paintings fall within the traditional conception of landscape composition but display a primary concern for the performance of the paint itself.
Her sculptural impasto, at times relieved with spacious glazes, truly constructs her imagery. Thus Tin’s work has its roots in the tradition of Constable and Turner, but is characterised by the handling of paint more recognisable in artists such as Auerbach, Freud and the Royal Academy exhibitor George Rowlett.
