Tania Gleave


"My work explores aspects of recollection and the imprecise elements of familiarity in memory and history.  Evocative surface textures and images are developed through a process of layering and combining several mediums such as monotype, drawing, painting, etching, encaustic, and dyed and stained metal and paper."
