Summer in the City
The summer of 2020 will live in our collective memory for decades to come. A global pandemic becoming more deadly by the day, a country beginning its reckoning with centuries of abuse and racism, potential worldwide economic collapse, a new, more powerful women’s rights movement just in its fragile infancy, and the world’s foremost democracy at risk from unprecedented greed and corruption. The searing glow of “Day’s End” and “Night.Fall.” represent the many threats we are challenged to meet and transform into a different reality.
Tanya Hayes Lee is a visual artist who works primarily in oil on canvas in a modern abstract impressionist style. Her paintings convey the sublime in nature and are visual metaphors for our relationships to the world and to each other. Lee’s greatest inspirations include the nineteenth-century painters George Innes, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. She studied studio art at the Mass College of Art, Scottsdale Artist School, and Northern Arizona University.
