Tavares Strachan was born in Nassau, Bahamas.
As an artist, he notes, has always been attracted to how physical space displacement completely changes our reality. “I am concerned with a microcosmic approach to art-making, an approach that forces us to re-examine our experiences, interactions and involvements with all we have around us. From sculpting an invisible cube of heat, or listening to the sound of an ant walking, to sending light particles from one part of the world to another, these prepositions are engrossed with the presence of things physically missing or immediately distant. These apparently geological adjustments allude to a kind of poetry that is inherent in all spaces. What is physically present becomes dematerialized and my process reappears as a collision between technology and nature”. (Tavares Strachan)
