Technology of Gesture by Tanis Worme

October 23 - December 2, 2018

The Ottawa School of Art presents new works by Diploma Student Tanis Worme.  Tanis is an Ottawa based Plains Cree First Nation artist originally from Saskatchewan whose work currently focuses on traditional printmaking methods, painting, drawing and sculpture.

In this series of paintings, the images of hands depicted are gestural, organic and skillfully rendered. Each image suggests quiet and confident movements which are so vital and intricately woven into the visual communication fabric of Indigenous People’s oral traditions.   

Tanis has exhibited her work in Ottawa Ontario. Her work can also be found in private collections in Canada.

About the Artist

Having been grounded in Cree spirituality, this vein of study impressed further a dichotomy of world views. Her growing body of studio work thusly considers knowledge resurgence and language revitalization while questioning patriarchy and settler colonial structures.

Tanis Augustine Margaret Worme is an emerging artist from Saskatoon Saskatchewan. She is Plains Cree and a member of the Poundmaker First Nation with roots to Mistawasis and Kawacatoose First Nations. Tanis attended the University of Saskatchewan where she studied biological sciences which nourished her sense of curiosity for the natural world.
