Tabouret’s repertoire concentrates on women and children placed in eerie and demanding compositions, with the viewer’s attention drawn to their harrowing expressions of intensity and anticipation, frozen in desolate solitude. The figures are both dominating and allusive; with their pale complexions and expectant eyes interrogating the viewer for answers unknown. Tabouret’s paintings, realised on large scale canvases, are often fashioned from her archive of personal experiences and have most recently been exhibited this year in Avignon, France, as part of the historic Festival d’Avignon.
Silence is a dramatic and entrancing portrait created at an exciting peak of the artist's soaring career. The arresting figure, seated proudly and defiantly amongst the thick tropical growth, demands scrutiny, yet is unapologetically stoic in her full unyielding female brilliance.
