The Sculptures of Tamara Weller

An extrodinary artist has recently joined the ENGINE GALLERY family. We discovered Tamara Weller at the Artist Project in Toronto where she had been accepted as an artist in the Untapped program.

Tamara has an extrodinary ability to create an emotional narrative with her work and Steven and I were both struck by it immediately. Tamara is a recent graduate of the University of Manitoba and heavily involved in the arts community there.

It was this piece in particular that stopped my in my tracks, and now, having it in the gallery, it is having the same effect on our clients:

This sculpture is entitled "Linda" and is comprised of a painted bronze woman and a house built of wood. Tamara also created a large scale installation called "Morning House" shown below.

We are grateful to Tamara for the tenderness of this work. It does not fail to have an effect on those who share its space.
