Tanya Krzywinska

I am a painter and print-maker focused on figuration.

My visual art practice sits alongside my work as a writer, games educator and academic.  As a child, I spent much of my time dreaming in the witch house. The Gothic continues to return in my work, where I use words, paint and print as a medium to channel figurative imagery, drawing up the obscured and buried. I am currently working in oils, from live models, looking intently at the ways that the human body expresses space and light. This work is part of a wider exploration of the relationships between image-making, visual myths of female agency and the realities of female embodiment. I have been referring to past painting styles to help recover a sense of the body as the first site of the real.
