The Feels
Jan 19
Jan 28 2024
exhibition in-person

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.

Talie Shalmon is an artist, muralist and designer from Toronto. This is the beginning of her exploration into ceramics as a medium. Talie earned a Master’s in Interdisciplinary Design Research from Carleton University, a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Queen’s University and a Graphic Design Certificate from Humber College. She has exhibited in galleries including the Gardiner Museum, Whippersnapper Gallery and Northern Contemporary. Talie’s murals can be found in public spaces across the GTA.
