Tamsin Relly’s (b. 1981, South Africa) multi-disciplinary practice includes painting, printmaking and photography. In response to the global climate crises, her work explores the reciprocal relationship we have with our planet’s ecology and the ways in which we find connection with the living world.
Drawing reference material from both found media imagery and first hand observations, Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of painting and printmaking to present impressions of urban and natural environments in states of uncertainty or impermanence. Relly has had solo exhibitions both in South Africa and London, and residencies in London and New York. Her work is held in collections including Simmons Contemporary and the National Maritime Museum in London.
