Artist of the Month: Lia Tajcnar

 'Capo' Brooch Lia Tajcnar

Lia studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Painting at University of Calgary in Canada in the 1980's before studying ceramics at Alberta College of Art & Design (Canada). In 2003 she started her Masters of Philosophy, Visual Arts, Ceramics Workshop, The School of Art, Australian National University in Canberra, completing her studies in 2006. She currently lives and works in Canberra.

 'Chaos' Lia Tajcnar

To get a little bit of a 'behind the scenes' information on Lia's unique material combinations and textured surfaces, have a peek at her skethches and descriptions in the images below.

I look forward to seeing Lia's new work for the White Heat exhibition! Her work is so intricately textured with varying materials and techniques and should go down a treat on our first scheduled Touch Tour at Gaffa Gallery in August. Her pieces are so tactile you just want to touch them!
