'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!
