Inspired by the transformative nature of mushrooms as they grow into beautiful and odd formations from the lowest source of decaying matter, Tania spread the spores of mushrooms onto the tutu, combining their separate but equally magical worlds.
Tania Sanhueza is a Toronto-based textile artist and illustrator. Known for her finely crafted owls, mushrooms and city squirrels, Sanhueza’s soft sculptures explore the social fabric of urban life and its relationship to the environment. Also interested in animal and ecological preservation, her sculptures are laboriously constructed from found or recycled environmentally conscious materials.
