Tanea Hynes is an interdisciplinary artist from western Labrador.
My artistic practice is constantly changing as I navigate life as a creative person. From a young age, I was intensely interested in taking and manipulating photographs as a means of self-expression. As my interests and experiences expanded, I began to use photo documentation as a tool to explore and investigate the world around me. I believe in maintaining an interdisciplinary practice as it allows me to weave multiple techniques (photo documentation, processes, and manipulation, creative writing, animation, design aesthetics) into my work. I am drawn to creating glossy graphic design and bold imagery. I have a desire to learn continuously, to make accessible art work, and to experience all that life has to offer me as fuel for my practice.
Tanea will graduate from NSCAD University in 2019. She will hold a BFA in Photography and Art History. Tanea is a recipient of two Arts & Letters awards from the Newfoundland and Labrador Government. Her most recent publication was for Cole Degenstein’s shrines.
