BIO

Tania Welz head shot bassa res

Born in Munich, Germany, Tania Welz has lived and worked in Rome for over 20 years.

Welz aims at an unconventional use of fibers, choosing fabrics and materials, connecting them to each other through cuts, assemblages, burns and padding, creating large abstract works with a strong chromatic and textural impact. Through the juxtaposition of poor materials (such as recycled jute) with rich fabrics or precious inserts (gold, silk, brocade), the artist offers a perspective of dynamic and visually evocative transformation.
