Langdon's immediate approach to line and colour creates the strong sense of urgency in her work. She consistently fights against the limitations of time in her diverse subject matter, whether in the movement of a pianist's hands or the stillness of an empty street. Dripping ink washes are given form by sharp accents in crayon - a balance of spontaneity and consideration that plays with the pictorial space while providing a narrative for the abstract qualities of her work.
Tiana Langdon was born in 1978 and trained at St Martin's school of Art and Design where she was awarded the graduate prize for drawing. She worked as the Senior Textile Designer for John Galliano at Christian Dior before her decision to focus on her art. Her work has been exhibited at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs du Louvre and the Galerie Nationale du Grand Palais in Paris.
