Tanya Sternberg (b 1977) lives and works in Cape Town as an artist and graphic designer.
Her artworks explore human nature's pursuit to be whole. Layered with ink, pins and x-rays, artworks are bold yet sensitively fragile.
Angular planes of colour and x-ray float and journey through space in a random but contradictory organized fluid movement.
Ink organic wash represents a freedom of space and transience. Meshed within this is the intricate landscape of architectural planes. Geometric shapes originally start in an organized fashion building layers upon each other until there is a dense overlapping of structures.
Tanya draws inspiration from connected moments between people, her family and the inner pursuit of space and balance in our natural and urban landscapes.
Her current body of work is a collection of laser-cut, hand-painted ink artworks on paper.
Pieces are intricate and detailed, yet bold and graphic. Framed and floating behind glass, these works create shadows that interact creating a layered and dynamic effect.
Tanya’s works reside throughout South Africa, as well as in Dubai, Paris, Washington, New York and Toronto.
