Tanta DeStaffany Pennington 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. Tanta’s practice combines contemporary ideas with traditional methods of execution such as painting and drawing. Her art examines a world composed of fragments of geometry, architecture and fantasy. Through unconscious acts of art making she creates abstract psychological and emotional maps of her internal conversations and memories. This design conjuring allows Tanta to refine, edit and apply her own sense of wonder in each new work as she explores the boundaries linking art and the everyday.
