About Tania Babb

Bildschirmfoto 2020-08-30 um 09.56.51

Tania Babb was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in Mozambique, and now creates her sculptures and teaches ceramics from her studio home in Cape Town, South Africa.

Her work emanates from a fascination with people and their relationships — to each other, to themselves, and to other important things or moments in their lives. Tania likes to capture fleeting moments in clay, where a gesture reveals the depth and nature of these relationships, much like an author would reveal these depths with snippets of dialogue.

Her art is about the powers of the female archetype and the inherent wisdom of women. She identifies as an African artist for the continent's subtle but pervasive energy which few tangibles have the power to describe. Of African art and ceramics, Tania sees "the colors, the vibrancy, the fresh and new surfaces, the immediacy, {which} to me are all evidence of a rawness that I feel is unfettered and untempered by hundreds of years of civilization. "

Tania prefers to work in buttery porcelain which she feels has the feeling of human flesh, with all the vulnerability that being human implies.

She has achieved a long list of exhibitions and awards since becoming a full-time artist in the late 1980s.
