Heiidi Tailleferr is back at it, this time with a new art print. “The Muse” is a seven color archival pigment print on 330gsm fine art paper in an edition of 40. This print measures 21 x 13 inches and will be available shortly at 1XRun. A little more about the artist:
“I have always been drawn to the bizarre and unusual, while maintaining a wide variety of interests, from the ridiculous and the absurd to the sacred and sublime, and all throughout these interests have encompassed ideological concerns about the environment and the impact of technology on society. In the late-80’s I began depicting mechanized subjects placed in natural settings, which acted as a nostalgic embrace of the past as seen through the lens of a culture racing forward at high speed, fitted with massive technological advancement.
My paintings are meant to denounce or celebrate technology and the changes it either promises or threatens, as a projection of what we are becoming with both the appeal of the familiar and the jolt of where we are headed. By using “automatic” mechanical motifs instead of todays current digital trend, the principle of technology is more easily maintained against increasing miniaturization and the invisibility of electronics, remaining anchored firmly within our field of perception.
In more recent years, I have painted about philosophical observations on life which are drawn out of personal experience, and parlayed into an exploration of universal issues common to everyone. Using the original language of mechanism found throughout my work, I explore eternal aspects of the human condition while portraying a growing hybridization with technology despite our immutable human nature. In this way I examine the new relationship between artificial enhancement of the body and daily life, combined with the primitive fundamentals of our human character.” – Heidi Taillefer
