Tanya Through The Eyes Of Artists
This interdisciplinary project premiered at The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. on March 23rd, 2011.
Noting that his wife, Tanya Anisimova, often improvises in response to paintings, artist Alexander Anufriev collaborated with her to create Tanya through the Eyes of Artists. The composition realizes Anufriev’s desire “to let the artist and the improviser face each other; to let these artists paint Tanya.” Since the artists in question—apart from Anufriev himself—have long been dead, he did the work on their behalf. Taking into account the personal characteristics of each of the chosen masters, he portrayed Tanya as that artist might have painted her. She, in turn, improvises in response to each portrait as the work is performed.
