Tana Quincy's work re-examines the use of utilitarian materials from the vantage point of a painter. Her unconventional approach is as much about acquiring new forms of media and reinventing process as it is about composition and mark-making. Her paintings explore the dialogue between substrate and surface. Quincy has had several solo exhibitions in the Midwestern United States, and has shown nationally from New York City to San Francisco. After receiving her MFA in figurative painting from the New York Academy of Art, she taught studio art at the college level for four years. She currently lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
