TWU Sculptor’s Artwork Explores Intrigue Of The Sea

10/29/04


DENTON — The pulse of the natural force of the sea is captured in a video installation of artwork by Tanya Synar, the new sculpture faculty member in the Texas Woman’s University Department of Visual Arts.

“The Sea,” an installation involving video, audio and running water, and “Source Crossing,” an observation of water and its relationship to light and movement, will be on exhibit Nov. 3-23 in the West Fine Arts Gallery, located at Oakland and Texas streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and admission is free. A reception for the artist is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12. For more information, call (940) 898-2530.

Synar’s work was inspired by her yearly pilgrimages to the rugged Pacific Northwest coastline.

“My goal is to capture a hypnotic yet challenging side of the sea and still leave room for the breadth and nature of the experience to be personalized through the spectator,” she said. “We search for pattern to situate ourselves in the world. It is the nature of the search that intrigues me.”
