Tamara McGregor

. Categories: Allgemein, Artists, INTERVIEWS.

 Tamara McGregor is a renaissance woman of sorts. A trained painter who fell in love

with scenography upon a chance encounter with a street performance of a puppet

theater troupe, she works in a variety of media. McGregor has designed the visual component

of performances that run the gamut from Shakespeare to Lorca to Mishima. 

Her works on canvas and in ceramics can be found in private collections around the world.

She wrote a film script, which garnered the Debut Prize at the Foundation

of American Film Artists’ Hartley-Merrill Prize competition. McGregor’s current work, which can best

be described as a manipulation of iconic images, is at once timely and classic (oddly reminiscent of

Gustav Klimt.) Whether she is waxing poetic on art, or performance, or the existence of a plurality of

worlds, hers is an intriguing and engaging intellect. We here at Lereport are convinced that her best

work is yet to come.
