Taney Roniger is a visual artist, writer, and educator based in New York. Since the late 90s she has been exploring the relationship between art, science, and the spirituality of immanence in both her work as an artist and in numerous essays and symposia. Most recent among her larger projects was Strange Attractors: Art, Science, and the Question of Convergence, an online symposium co-organized with the CUE Art Foundation in conjunction with which she served as Guest Editor for the winter issue of The Brooklyn Rail. While the art-science nexus has been a particular concern, her greater vision is that of what E.O. Wilson called consilience: the unification of all domains of knowledge in the service of a common goal. She is currently involved in organizing a conference exploring art and ethical posthumanism. She holds an MFA from Yale University and a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she has taught since 2007.

Drawing, the Body, and the Cognitive Unconscious

“My work begins with simple gesture drawings made with graphite. Executed without plan and with as few strokes as possible, the forms that emerge record a confluence of forces. A kind of collaboration between a sensing organism and the dynamics of its environment, each drawing is unique, irreproducible by definition.”
