You Have To Check Out Tau Lewis’ Symphony At The National Gallery This Month

Until September 23rd, you can check out the awe-inspiring Symphony creation at the National Gallery. Tau Lewis, the Toronto born artist, has the most interesting and beautiful techniques that are being featured for the first time in the National Collection.

 

Tau Lewis, the Jamaican-Canadian artist, has the incredible technique of reworking fabrics and textiles to convey her own lived reality. A kind of self-portrait, the detail and beauty inherent to her pieces come from the intimate spaces she has lived or visited and care she invests in them.

Every part of the artwork is a product of Lewis’ intricate skill that for the artist, is part of a “commitment to healing personal, collective, and historical traumas through labour”, as explained by the National Gallery.┬áSimply mesmerizing, the Symphony exhibit is a must-see by this young Canadian artist.
