Tavares Strachan - I Belong Here Project
Tavares Strachan - Contemporary Artist

Tavares Strachan, originally of Nassau, Bahamas, holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (2003) as well as an MFA from Yale University (2006), and has received numerous awards of recognition since 1998.  His work has been featured in shows around the world and most recently in Roundabout at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.   Some of his recent work focuses on man’s relationship to nature, that is, his antagonistic struggle against it, his efforts to collapse distance and space, and his myopic pursuit of progress at the planet’s expense. Strachan eschews the coldness adopted by other conceptual artists, instead creating installations that speak not only to our intellectual interests, but to our emotional concerns, our feelings of loneliness, desire, and loss.
