Tali Gutman – Artist Biography

These pieces are inspired by the forms and colours in nature, the movement in the stillness. The natural rhythms and markings of time through the rising and setting sun and moon, the changes in the seasons. The feelings of relief, release and peace these monumental landscapes can gift us in reminding us of our insignificance, that we are such a tiny part of this infinite universe, but also that this infinite universe is a part of us.

Somewhere along our journey from childhood to adulthood we lose the magic. The world, once an endless array of fascinating experiences and exposures that could hold our attention in wonder for hours, becomes dull, mundane, tiresome. Artmaking is something that helps me to remember the magic. To find the sparkle in the ‘every day’. To bring joy, whimsy, colour, adventure and play back into our worlds. While it manifests in different mediums, formalities, and probably audiences, it all comes from me. I share it here in the hope that it can help you remember your magic too!

Tali is a visual artist, a busy mum, a researcher by profession, and a kid at heart, based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney. She has learnt to love her adhd brain, and play to strengths! This means her offerings are diverse (just like her brain!) and are driven by her interests and attention of the day. She is passionate about keeping her work as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible through her choice of materials, upcycling and repurposing.

“Artmaking for me is both a healing practice and an offering – as someone who sat in the darkness for a long time trying to remember how to see the light, this is my way of shining the light I found as brightly as I can in case it might spark the light in someone else who has been in the dark. It is about remembering our magic, reclaiming our truest selves and walking a path of abundant expression. It is about connection with ourselves, each other and the natural world, and gratitude for all the wonder and bounty around us, because at the end of the day we are all part of the same living, breathing ecosystem of our universe.”
