This collection of ceramics and paintings by Talie Shalmon conveys a range of emotions, moods and states of mind. These works aim to communicate complex feelings, using the limitations of abstraction within two and three-dimensional media. A common thread can be seen tying together the ceramics and paintings; they explore shape, pattern and bold use of colour, sharing a similar aesthetic vocabulary. Inspired by a deep connection to nature, the forms and shapes make reference to water, plants, rocks and biological organisms. This collection includes paintings, ceramic vessels, bowls and necklaces.
