Tanya Goddard shows sculptures, installations, 3-dimensional collages and her new ceramic ‘figures of fantasy’

Tanya Goddard shows sculptures, installations, 3-dimensional collages and her new ceramic ‘figures of fantasy’ in her second solo exhibition at Anteros. After graduating from Moscow State University of the Arts Tanya’s first job was as a picture restorer in a New York gallery. On her return she worked as a stage and costume designer for Moscow theatres and it was this period that she feels has inspired many of her ‘fantasy creations’ such as ‘Journey to the Future’ and her ‘Alice in Wonderland Collection’. However whether based on a fantasy theme or a or a historic event, as with her striking sculpture of Tsar Nicholas II and family prior to their execution in 1918, she says that she has always been fascinated by the diversity of the human face. Her installations are often developed over several months and need the viewer to take time to look beyond the detail and to grasp the underlying theme and feeling as frequently more than one story is being told! ​Tanya has had two exhibitions in New York and Paris three TV programs made about her life and is proud of the fact that British Ambassador (Sir Roderic Lyne) invited her to give a solo exhibition at his Moscow residence. ​Opening Night Thursday 12th December 6pm-8pm
