Heavy Bubble and 110 CHURCH are pleased to announce our October exhibition featuring Tamsen Wojtanowski. Her cyanotypes created from constructions explore ideas of shelter and landscape.

The symbols in her vocabulary repeat, lean, and stack defining a space that has dimension, yet is ethereal. The nature of cyanotypes and the paper she uses invoke luscious and tactile moments. The longer you stand among them these landscapes and structures in this exhibition create a delicious dream-like state.

Shelter thoughts on the exhibition by Don Brewer >

Tamsen Wojtanowski is an artist originally from Yorkville, NY. She graduated from The Roy H. Park School of Communications, Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY with a degree in cinema and photography. She received her MFA in photography from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. She is an active member of the artist-run exhibition space, Napoleon, and has shown her work in several solo and group exhibitions nationally. She has taught as an assistant adjunct professor at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA; The Corcoran College of Art + Design, Washington, DC; and Arcadia University, Glenside, PA. 

Her preferred mediums are photography, mixed media, and assemblage. In her personal research she is interested in the accessibility and malleability of the photographic medium. In her studio she works with a number of different materials and processes to create autobiographical images, with an interest in our natural human disposition of storytelling. She believes in art and its ability to open an individual's world up to new experiences and conclusions. 

Her inspirations include found objects, lucid dreams, literature, and giant squids. She currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.

Tamsen is a founding member of Napoleon a collectively-run project space located in Philadelphia.
