Tatiana Garmendía (b. 1961, Havana): A figurative/conceptual artist, Tatiana Garmendía creates realistic, X-ray like images of the human body using graphite and metal leaf on paper. She has written of her interest in “reconciling figurative representation and the formal concerns of creating illusionistic images on a flat surface.” Garmendía has exhibited at the Bronx Museum of Arts, the Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City, the Milan Art Center, the Castfield Gallery in England, and the Galeria Riesa Efau in Germany, among other venues. She is the recipient of a best-of-show award from the Bellevue Art Museum in Washington, of grants from Seattle Central Community College and of two Pratt G.I.A. fellowships from the Drawing Resource Center in Brooklyn. Among her independent curatorial projects are Salpicón Cubano/Cuban Splash at the Kirkland Art Center in Kirkland, Wash., and Survival Of Joy: Contemporary Cuban Artists, at the SCCC Art Gallery in Seattle. Garmendía has taught at Coral Gables Senior High School, the Pratt Institute and, since 1993, at Seattle Central Community College. Garmendia was trained at the American University in Paris, and has Master of Fine Arts degrees from Florida International University and the Pratt Institute of Art. (Cintas for art, 1993-94)
