                                                         Tanya's multi-media compositions and

                                                             installations bring together traditional mediums                                                             of drawing, printmaking, collage, and painting

                                                     with a wide range of found materials.


                                                         The"soul quality"of things weathered by time

                                                                and the elements, for example, a tattered                                                                           muslim curtain from an abandoned farmhouse                                                        kitchen; a shard of wood from a fallen

                                                        century-old barn; a fragment of pottery churned                                                          up by a plough, evokes a dreamlike presence,

                                                          with gestural lines and organic textures meeting

                                                        a refined sense of fragility and temporality.

          The Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi is a wisdom that she cultivates both in her collection of materials and in the process of creating. A sensibility which has no

direct translation to English, Wabi-Sabi is sometimes defined as:

 “The beauty of things impermanent and incomplete”.

Much more than an aesthetic, she believes it touches a universal longing

for reverence, genuineness, and acceptance.
