Having been described as “resistant to easy reading” in a recent review of her solo exhibition at the Jane Deering Gallery, Joan Tanner is an artist whose work reaches a degree that few Santa Barbara-based artists have reached. Like her creative energy, her concepts are bold and witty. Being inspired by such themes as spatial contradiction, archetypal geometric forms, and raw material, her work spans more traditional mediums as well as newer, multi-media formats. She has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries, including the Otis College of Art and Design and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Her work is in such collections as the Getty Center for the History of Art and Humanities in Los Angeles, CA, and Harvard University Houghton Library, Cambridge, MA.
