Egon Tania

Dutch born sculptor Egon Tania recently settled in Cape Town after living and working in Gauteng. Tania mainly uses wood as a medium for sculptures based on the human form, in a tradition of woodcarving that is probably as old as humankind itself. It is a visual language most viewers are well acquainted with, and therefore an expressive and communicative means not hindered by the shock of the novelty or method. The sculptor therefore feels he has carte blanche and finds the age-old tradition liberating rather than restrictive of expression in this medium.
