Based in Montréal, Tanzanian-American artist Shanna Strauss creates some very unique works by putting together pieces of wood she finds, and incorporating various techniques such as photographic transfer, painting, engraving, and sculpture using African fabric.
The selection presented, taken from three series—The Floating Homeland, Re-membering and Namesake—takes you into her artistic exploration of the transitional nature of identity and what we call “home”, spirituality, ancestral memory and healing journey.
September 28th from 11am to 12:30pm, in the Espace Cascades de la TOHU
On the occasion of the Journées de la culture at La TOHU, artist Shanna Strauss will propose to transfer images onto wood and decorate them with her. Drawing, painting and pyrography will be used to create unique works. A great opportunity to leave with a work inspired by the techniques used by the artist in the exhibition.
Places are limited. On reservation only.
THE FREE ACTIVITIES ARE MADE POSSIBLE THANKS TO THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE CITY OF MONTREAL.
