Exhibition of drawings and paintings by Taline Temizian ‘Khovanshchina’

Выставка Талине Темизян «Хованщина»

Armenian artist Taline Temizian has opened her exhibition dedicated to the famous Modest Musorgsky’s opera ‘Khovanshchina’ at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London on March 27.

‘Khovanshchina’ is a project close to Temizian’s heart. Her ancestry being Soviet Armenian, she has a genetic understanding of inner conflict, whether this is within a nation or within one’s personal identity and her costume drawing creations are exploring exactly this notion. Her highly theatrical characters –almost portrait looking- are systematically underlined by her love of history, classical art and strong sense of luxury. Her works are fearless and rich, with plenty of texture, colors and materials, of highly imaginative yet confident and mature compositions. Read more »
