ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Taline is a Canadian-Armenian who moved to Canada at an early age. She has always shown a keen interest towards art. What started as a hobby during her adult life turned into a pursuit of continuous improvements of sculpting techniques and designs. She is self-taught and has pursued some courses with renowned Toronto artists.

After experimenting various forms of art, she chose sculpting as a means of expressing herself. Her work is inspired by meaningful events in her life.  She has tried to represent nature, as well as life’s beauty, peace, brilliance and joy. She has expressed of all these positive feelings through the faces and the physical expressions of her sculptures, in order to show the perfect harmony between nature and life.

In a period of less than 2 years, Taline created over 25 sculptures and her collection, The Garden of My Imagination, was featured in three solo exhibitions and one group show. She also participated at ArtExpo NY and was selected for the 2nd Biennale of Palermo. Her works can be found in several galleries and community centres in Canada and were featured in prominent art magazines. Her next challenge is the preparation of a sculpture dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide to be unveiled in the Spring-Summer of 2015.

Art is a way of expressing human solutions, emotions and imaginations. I have chosen sculpting as a means of expressing myself. My work, which is the result of my inner world, is inspired by meaningful events in my life, as seen through my eyes. I have tried to represent nature, as well as life’s beauty, peace, brilliance and joy. I have expressed all of these positive feelings through the faces and the physical expressions of my sculptures, in order to show the perfect harmony between nature and life.

 

Each bronze sculpture immortalizes a life event. I have tried to see it through the eyes of the art lover to open his or her imagination so that he or she can find a piece of himself/herself in each of my sculptures. As a first impression, you’ll notice that my sculptures have a common theme. They all show life’s positive aspects. However, a closer look reveals that each sculpture is a story by itself. I hope they will be your magical journey and that you’ll find a piece of yourself in each sculpture.
