Ecstasy – Talin Piri

Why did you pick this picture?

I chose this picture for two main reasons. First, I wanted to work on water series paintings to experience water painting. Second, I wanted to show the enjoyment of the moment.

The picture demonstrates a woman’s face on water which is surrounded by petals and water drops on her face. It is a combination of beauty of life and capturing the moment of this beauty.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

Time goes by fast and as we get older, we usually do not enjoy every moment of our life and looking for better days to come. We look forward Fridays, Holidays, birthdays and so on to be happy. However, our time is running out without recognizing it. We need to slow down and be present in our lives. There is so much beauty in life; take a moment and enjoy the moment. As Emily Dickinson says: “Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough”.

What does this art mean to you?

This painting has been a turning point in my art career. Prior to this painting, I was undecided about choosing either abstract art or realistic art. I did some abstract paintings, however, I was not satisfied. Then I found this picture & immediately desired to paint it. Indeed, I feel I am in the right path to develop my art style.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I am Los Angeles based self-taught artist. Ever since I was a kid I used my free time to draw and paint . The main medium I use is oil paint. I did my first oil painting when I was 16 years old. I studied physics in university, however, art has always been my passion.  For so many years, I have tried to understand the purpose of my life through learning different subjects. However, when I paint, I feel satisfied and enriched. Colors make me feel alive. I can spend hours and hours to paint and do not recognize the passage of time. Art is the purpose of my life. Personally, I love being at home because I have so much work to do. At the same time, I love traveling and seeing new places. I also love collecting art and art prints from my favorite artists.

What more can you tell us about your art?

My art is a reflection of my inspiration from universe and nature. Life is a precious gift .We usually are so busy with everyday life that we rarely see the world around us. In my works, I would like to represent the beauty of the world and being present in the moment. In essence, I mainly portray women as a symbol of beauty and giving life. In other words, art is something inside me. I feel alive when I create a painting. Otherwise, I feel unfulfilled deep inside. I know that I have been created to do this because I love and enjoy it.
