Tamara Dean’s (b. 1976, Australia) practice extends across photography, installation and participatory works exploring the relationship between humans and the natural world and the role ritual plays in our lives. Natural cycles within time and space, life and death, nature and spirituality contribute to her way of investigating the world around her.
Dean’s works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Asia and Europe, including Pagan Pop, Canberra Contemporary Art Gallery, Canberra, Australia (2011); Sydney Now – New Australian Photojournalism, Museum of Sydney (2007); and Women and Freedom, Art Gallery of New South Wales (2004). Her works are included in public and private collections, including Artbank (Australia); Tweed River Gallery (Australia); ArtOmi Collection, New York (USA); and Francis J. Greenburger Collection, New York (USA).
