Tania Love

Tania Love is a Toronto-based visual artist whose work evolves from a relationship with the natural and cultural habitat. Her process centred use of diverse natural materials places emphasis on tactility and invites slower rhythms. She is the recipient of numerous grants and residencies and has exhibited both within Canada and internationally. During last year’s DesignTO Festival, Love was recognized with a ‘Best In Festival: Exhibition’ award for the collaborative project “mémoire”.
