“The Space In Between” by Tanya Ragir
The work of sculptor Tanya Ragir carries a theme of overcoming limitations. Some are cultural, some political, some sexual and as she puts it “many are self imposed.” She embraces the gravitas, the depth and breadth of the beauty of women, which is limitless. Growing up a dancer, and being a woman, informs everything she creates in sculpture. Movement and form is the language and vocabulary of each piece.
She says: “I have always been intrigued by the way in which form originates from, and returns to an unseen source: the invisible interior. The feminine symbol of the circle is also at the heart of this work.”
Ragir’s pieces are sculpted in clay. Pieces are fired or cast in bronze, aluminum, stainless steel and polyester resin. Sizes range from inches to monumental. The work is produced in either limited editions of nine, or as unique pieces.
Tanya Ragir’s sculptures are available at the DeVorzon Gallery (310) 888-0111
