About Tania Pomales Art

Tania Pomales
Cumberland County

Tania Pomales is the Cumberland County Arts & Culture Connector. Working in conjunction with DC Gallery and co-Connector Danielle Cartier, Tania will connect with Cumberland County artists, organizations, and businesses while receiving mentorship from SJCA and experts in the field.

Tania Pomales is a New Jersey-based Puerto Rican artist specializing in dark and surreal works created primarily in oils. As a nod to her colorful and bold heritage, Pomales incorporates bright color palettes into her art in juxtaposition with darker motifs, such as skulls and human anatomical references, to explore themes of life and death and the cyclical nature of the human experience. The importance of mental health and deep self-reflection are also fundamental themes in her body of work.

Artist Statement
The world can often feel like a very dark, confusing, and overwhelming place. Too often, we go through the motions of the everyday hustle and bustle without taking time to self-reflect and to look through the haze in order to see that there is beauty, truth, and profound healing if only we take that leap of faith. My work is about taking that leap every day, learning to see the beauty in chaos, and teaching others how to do the same.
