• Tania Kovats: SEAMARKS

Tania Kovats’ ongoing series ‘SEAMARKS’, multiple seascapes captured in brushstrokes, drawings and ceramic, is being expanded with the creation of a new tapestry by Dovecot Studios. Kovats presents the passing of time through the broken surface of the sea, the elemental rhythms of the moon and the meditative qualities of weaving and drawing.

Kovats repetitive marks capture the energy and flicker of water in this converted Victorian bath house. As the marks get smaller and closer towards the horizon they invoke a sense of infinity, exploring how art can speak to our critical climate emergency.


Please note that this exhibition is on the tapestry studio viewing balcony and is open for limited hours –

Monday to Friday, 12:00 – 15:00 and Saturday (and Sunday in August), 10:00 – 17:00.
