Biography

A gold-medalist from Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai (BFA, Painting, 1986) Kiyomi Talaulicar moved to the USA in 1988, attained an MFA (Painting, 1993) at East Carolina University where she won the Gravely Foundation Scholarship and the Liquitex Excellence in Art Award. Followed by more Juror's Awards and Honors at various national exhibitions held in North Carolina, Minnesota, New Mexico and Wisconsin in the United States, in 2001-02, she was awarded the Jerome Foundation / Women's Art Registry of Minnesota Scholarship.

Since her return to India in 2003, some of Kiyomi's participations include 2 solo exhibitions - The Avid Gaze at Chemould Prescott Road & In Search of Lyricism at Gallery Chemould in Mumbai; Art Fairs such as ArtDubai 2008 & 2009 and The India Art Summit 2009 and 2011 in New Delhi; cultural art camps to Brazil, Ladakh, Assam, the Uttarayan Art Center in Baroda and Kerala; and invitational exhibitions such as Hope for Haiti - India Cares, An Auction of Modern & Contemporary Indian Art in Mumbai, Songs of Sorrow, Songs of Joy at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum Lawns in Mumbai, I Witness by the Fine Art Company at Museum Gallery in Mumbai, 1 x 1 India at the Oberoi Trident Terrace in Mumbai, Making History Our Own organized by SAHMAT at AIFACS Gallery in New Delhi, Women's Work at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Wisconsin, USA, Present/Future and VI Ideas & Images at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Mumbai, among others.

Inspired to create images about embracing life, Kiyomi generates a thought picture, refined in feel, tone and structure, drawing a viewer's gaze to rest into a meditative but free space. She prefers to distill thought and idea, traditionally - to enclose the universe of a multiplicity of feeling into a single and essential image.

Kiyomi starts with a visual idea and maintains it on a highly conscious level, working slowly in layers, as she says "The process of layering and mixing media simultaneously parallels human vulnerability, and reflects the kind of continual self-reinvention that every person experiences throughout a lifetime."
