Tania LaCaria Biography
Tania LaCaria (Canadian b. 1985) is an Italian-Canadian artist. She holds a BA in Fine Arts from York University (2006) and a CIDA advanced diploma in Interior Design from Sheridan College (2009). LaCaria has traveled the world extensively, gathering inspiration from various cultures and countries where she's lived, namely in Latin America and South East Asia. Her travels have always influenced her work in art and design and continue to be an important source of inspiration for her work. She returned to Canada and settled in Hamilton in 2016, where she currently lives and works.
Tania LaCaria's paintings explore the concept of paradox through an Abstract Expressionism aesthetic. Considering the colour black as a representation of Herself, she often applies black medium as the first or second marks. Keen to place play & experimentation at the forefront of her creative experience, LaCaria works with a wide variety of ink, acrylic paint & pastels, and uses eccentric tools such as brooms, home decor, rolling pins, personal clothing & credit cards to support her intuitive and adventurous approach to mark making.
