Tanja Geis makes research-based paintings, drawings, sculptures and videos that invite intimacy with human-disturbed marine and coastal ecosystems through queering, drawing close to and staying with the impacts of humans on the liveliness of non-humans.

She has taught at University of California Berkeley. Geis' awards include a Graduate Fellowship and Affiliate Artist Fellowships at the Headlands Center for the Arts, a Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Award from The San Francisco Foundation, and a Graduate Arts Grant from the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts. She has been an artist-in-residence at Djerassi Resident Artist Program, the Blue Mountain Center and Kala Art Institute. Geis was born in Hong Kong and lives in Berkeley, CA. www.tanjageis.com
