about me

My name is Tanith K. (they/their) and I am radical.

rad-i-cal /ˈradək(ə)l/

adjective

1. a word used by people over the age of 30 in an attempt to sound cool.

2. a description of an action or thing that is especially impressive.

3. advocating or based on thorough or complete political or social change.

We’re told from a young age to think outside of “the box.” Through critical thinking skills and asking not nearly enough questions, we slowly gain knowledge and lived experiences that help shape who we are. We learn words and phrases to help us to not only identify ourselves but to also connect to a greater community. A simple human desire to not be alone and to feel seen. Labels change as we change. Sometimes - those labels are enough. But most times? They offer a snapshot of who we are at that moment.

We are so much more than a description. 

We defy description and that makes us divine.

I want to capture that snapshot - a moment in time that by its very nature cannot sit still. I want to visit with it - the label and the attachment; the healing and the release. I want to question everything, feel everything - knowing that there’s a strange certainty in finding contentment via the silence and softness of the journey. I exist outside of the box, and what an incredible world waits just outside of the walls of expectation.

Tanith resides in the Kansas City metro area and has their art in homes from Portland, OR to Danbury, CT. They are currently the Vice President and Artist Committee Member for local art-centric nonprofit No Divide KC and a leader in tenant-led organization Rent Zero KansasHead to these organizations' websites to see the latest projects and information!

Reviews

I have three pieces by Tanith K. (Gallery Athanor) and each one is very special to me. Tanith puts a level of control in their brand of chaos that makes their art not only catch the eye but say something meaningful and powerful, seemingly without even trying. They speak of turmoil and joy and evoke passion and praise. When you find yourself standing in front of their art, I dare you to try not to say something about it.

Tanith's perception of the universe and the inner self is incomparable to anything I have seen galleries. Their work is inspiring and empowering on a celestial level. I feel powerful when I look at their work. Incredible and moving.

I commissioned a set of three paintings from Tanith that I absolutely love. I gave a funky throw pillow as the inspiration and they ran so much farther with that than I expected. The pieces look great on the wall and have so much character and life in them that they've quickly become a conversation starter. Everyone sees something different in them and it's so fun to hear new perspectives. Tanith was super easy to work with and showed great dedication to ensuring I got art we were both happy with.

I own two prints of their work and I am amazed by all of the texture and depth in each piece. I haven't seen abstract art like this before and am mesmerized by each piece!

I commissioned some wedding invitations and RSVP cards from Gallery Athanor. They were beautiful! They worked with me to get the colors and art deco style for the cards. The designs were completed in a timely manner so that we had plenty of time for printing and mailing out. Thanks Gallery Athanor for making this process so easy!

I love Tanith's art. Both pieces are hanging above my bed and will remain there until, presumably, I replace them with another set from them. The pieces came in amazingly fast and in perfect condition. Honestly, I can not find any flaws in any facet of my transaction for this artwork
