Press release

Real Art Ways presents an exhibition by Taiga Ermansons, opening on Thurs., Jan. 15. The opening reception is from 6-8 p.m. and is part of Creative Cocktail Hour. Admission to the opening is $10, $5 for Real Art Ways members. The exhibition, which runs through Sun. Mar. 22, features Ermanson's Kleenex tissue "contemporary samplers." After the opening reception, admission to the exhibition is free of charge.

Taiga Ermansons often uses unconventional but common materials in her work:

I make linear marks using a range of commonplace methods and materials incuding tape, thread, remnant paper and scrap wood. My work is exact and without illusion. It includes drawings, paintings and installation.

In her Real Art Ways exhibition, Ermansons has created "contemporary samplers" from Kleenex tissues and thread. The works contain traces of fracvtured traditions anchored on fragile, disposable ground.
