Tanya Majo is a multimedia artist whose passion lies in landscapes. An escapee from the urban world, her 10-year love affair with the Riebeek Valley has enabled her to reconnect with nature and find a new balance: taking time to be still and absorb the landscape is fundamental to her process.
She works with a variety of materials and across various disciplines and scales, interpreting her subject matter in suitable media, from micro 3D boxes in her Karoo series to the macro of oversized collage. She tells big stories using modest elements: her plein-air-style pastel and paint landscape ‘snapshots ’give intriguing clues to an unseen scale.
Tanya holds tertiary qualifications in graphic and interior design, and in her previous life as a corporate entity worked with giant international brands. In 2009 she co-curated and exhibited in Riebeek Kasteel’s ‘POP’ Group Exhibition.
