Talia Wignall

Artist

Having graduated from Adelaide Centre for the Arts in 2006, Talia Wignall has exhibited both solo and group exhibitions at spaces such as FELTspace, Gallery 139, Artspace at the Adelaide Festival Centre and Carclew Youth Arts. Her work has received a number of commendations and awards including The artEast Maras Group $1000 art prize (2007) and the Art Stretchers Award for Highest Student Graduate in Painting (2006). In 2008 Talia was a recipient of the Helpmann Academy Optus mentorship program, being mentored by renowned Adelaide artist Chelsea Lehmann.  Talia was recently selected a finalist in the 2009 National Youth Self Portrait prize at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra.

Connection to place and space often needs more than words to articulate. A room, a rock, an image can represent that enduring connection; something we feel but don’t need to say.

I echo the glass buoys hanging from the rafters, the leadlight bird, floating through and above the weddings, Christmas Eves and sun soaked green polyester drapes. These seemingly inanimate objects abound with life, yet are undeviating, enduring. Stay put, do not turn to dust. Remain as you are, forever.
