Tina Alberni is a semi-abstract artist. Her work is driven by the plights of endangered animals and other living beings whose current predicaments underscore how urbanism, infoglut, and virtual reality affect all life and our experience with it.
She strives to create awareness, breathing hope while keeping it real, often giving voice to life that can’t speak.

Over the last hundred years, humans have moved the planet outside its natural limits. The human impact has been so profound that the future of the planet's behavior is forever changed. Many geologists call our current time on the earth, the Anthropocene Epoch.
She strives to create awareness, breathing hope while keeping it real, giving voice to life that can’t speak.
Bringing awareness and igniting conversation and new behaviors about the systemic impact of technology and caustic human behavior on all life on the planet is a responsibility she feels deeply. It is a theme that intertwines throughout her work.
While technology connects us all, if we don’t use it wisely, she worries virtual reality could be all we have left. It may consume us and filter our experiences to a level which may keep us out of touch with nature all together.
As she see’s it, living beings are disappearing in large part because of climate change. Climate change is happening at a faster pace than ever, largely due to urbanism. Mass urbanism is enabled by technology. Ultimately, technology is overloading humanity with information, filtering experiences and removing us further and further away from nature.
Her process involves joining layers together in a variety of techniques and materials which build her framework. Geometry, color and symbolism fuse to complete her narrative. Her aesthetic blends expressive and graphic elements across all her bodies of work.
An important part completing her process involves finding the calm amidst the chaos. To come to terms and find her center, she meticulously and in a very purposeful way, draws and organizes clusters of symbols and binary code (ones and zeroes) which weave throughout her work. These represent the chaos of noise surrounding each one of us; how our experiences are possibly being filtered by technology. She finds calm in the process of tightly organizing, repeating and clustering hundreds of small symbols.
