About this Art
The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame with UV-Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"This piece was created after a trip to Bali which influenced it’s style. It was part of a series on horses I produced, which were initially slated to be shown in the middle east. This piece represents the first piece where I used an Indonesian shadow puppet design in the background as a familiar motif in my work. I wanted to create a piece about beauty emanating from the soul, and to create a visually striking piece as well. This piece is one of the more beautiful works I have produced and I feel it's beauty is also from within." - Heidi Taillefer
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Heidi Taillefer and 1xRUN.
I am a Montreal based artist working in surrealism and symbolism. My style of work developed out of influences in commercial as well as fine art, after a decade working in the field of commercial illustration, though I am primarily a self-taught artist. My work addresses the ubiquity of technology found throughout society, while at times weaving in considerations on the human condition.
"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
