Tanta Pennington


Tanta is based in Victoria BC Canada and is a Fine Arts Diploma and Independent Studio Program graduate from the Vancouver Island School of Art. Tanta has exhibited work at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Victoria International Airport, The Victoria Conference Centre, among other local galleries. Tanta has shown internationally, participating in the International 2011 Florence Biennale. Her work is featured in private collections in Western Canada, Hawaii, California, and Italy.

Through unconscious acts of painting and drawing Tanta examines a world composed of fragments of geometry, architecture and fantasy. Using a vocabulary of hard-edged cell shapes and ethereal dream like forms she investigates the edges between her internal voices and the real world. Tanta is currently focused on exploring a range of scales and formats including painting, drawing, installation, and sculpture.
