Tanya Vlach

The same day as Hurricane Katrina, Tanya Vlach was driving on the other side of the country in Northern California on her way to one of the largest arts festivals in the world. At dusk she was found unconscious from a traumatic car accident. Tanya barely came out alive, losing her left eye in the tumble, among other injuries. Becoming this intimate with death, Tanya is driven by the consciousness of her mortality and her work is imbued with a sense of urgency and exploration of what it means to be alive.
