TANIA WURSIG







Biography:
Tania Wursig was born in Sydney in 1967. Of German, Finnish and Gypsy descent, she attributes much of the exotic nature of her work to her diverse cultural background. After completing her Bachelor of Arts at Sydney College of the Arts in 1990 with a major in Fashion and Textile Design and a minor in Painting and Drawing, Wursig set up a studio in Sydney and began painting full time. The inspiration of light, colour and the female form is dominant in Wursig's work - a celebration of femininity.
She is best known for her flamboyant palette and exploration of the sensual. Wursig's dynamic career as a professional painter has taken her all over the world, including residencies in Paris and Barcelona, an invitation to the Third International Artists' Symposium in Budapest and commission work in Maui, Hawaii. During her years travelling and living in Europe, Wursig's work underwent many transformations. Embracing new cultures and experiences has also given her an appetite for narrative. Drawing inspiration from her own journey, she has introduced a deeply personal language of symbolism and imagery into her paintings. Wursig has created a unique style of combining sensual figurative work with the textural possibilities of painting on silk, lace and other vintage textiles. Her paintings are held in private and public collections worldwide including the Cellar de Can Ginestar in Barcelona and the MOM Gallery in Budapest.
