Talitha observes the relationship between an individual's physical and spiritual reality through the neuron system's connections. She pictures that one's distance to oneself/god/divine energy is as close as our skin and blood vessels; invisible but present. Thus, she deconstructs multiple dimensions of human life to reveal what-so-called "the secret of life" that is often found in the tiniest, invisible structures and our solar system. These structures - depicted in the form of the microcosm (microbiology form) - then be reconstructed in the visualization of human anatomical figures, painted in a round transparent plexiglass
The plexiglass medium represents our limited logic and shallow wisdom, an unseen trap that surrounds our space and time, our reality. Using acrylic paint that generates bold colors and intricate forms in her paintings, she creates a strong relationship and contrast between the painting and its medium (plexiglass). She portrays inseparable dualism in every aspect of life that always comes along together.
Based in: Jakarta
Born and raised in Jakarta, Talitha went on to pursue her studies at Lasalle College International. Half of her childhood in the 90’s was spent with her grandfather, who was a doctor and instilled in her a strong interest in biology and science. Her natural inclination brought her to the fine arts, but his influence is still very present throughout her body of work. Talitha’s ambition is to infuse and project aspects of science and spirituality through her art. She considers her creative work to be a manifestation of her spirituality. She explores the possible worlds we could create through the help of science and art, and what each discipline could do to reflect society’s issues and perhaps affect political responses. Having engaged with diverse religions and cultures, her work is inspired by their visual symbols and cues -- yet rearranges them into new, conceptually layered installations. The choice of materials in her work is uncalculated. She often finds herself in avenues of the unexpected; adding an ironic twist to familiar scenes and provoking the spectator to new and perhaps unexplored territories. Her arrangements are schematic and invite the viewer to leave certainty and move into a space of speculation. She relies on our innate desires for beauty, poetics and seduction. Since starting her professional career in 2012, Talitha has produced numerous commissioned projects in public spaces, as well as many commercial projects and Exhibitions both locally and internationally
