Tan Wyn-Lyn


Artist Statement

Artist Wyn-Lyn Tanís works convey a union of opposites struggling to find some sort of lyrical madness, and is based on a personal emotive journey. This intimate dialogue between her and the canvas is a journey that includes suppression and expression, recesses of darkness and layers of light, niceness and ugliness.
