    TAIRA

     

    A native of Kiev, Russia, artist Taira is highly regarded for her lyrical and highly imaginative metal sculptures and has earned equal praise and the respect of art connoisseurs and critics alike for her amazing mixed media abstract paintings.  She brings a similar sense of grace and power to her paintings. Her use of strong colors and the texture of gestural forms evoke a passionate response to each work of art. Her imagination and charisma are clearly exceeded by her amazing talent.

    TAIRA’s work is in permanent collections in Canada, France, the United States and Japan. Her work has appeared in over 50 exhibitions in the United States, Canada, including shows at the Mira Goddard Gallery in Quebec the Alan Stone Gallery, New York, Emil Leonard Gallery in New York City.

    In a career of considerable excellence and notoriety that spans over 50 years, TAIRA continues to captivate her legion of followers and collectors with new and exciting works of art.  Even at this stage in life, she does not shy away from taking risks and exploring new techniques and mediums. 

     

    Colin Fisher Studios in the greater Palm Springs, CA area has represented TAIRA for over ten years and following Colin Fisher’s retirement, TAIRA is now represented by JJ Harrington Gallery in greater Palm Springs.  JJ Harrington is proud to carry most of TAIRA’s new work and has a fine inventory of some older work that is still available for acquisition.
