Gulnaz Turdalieva (Windsor, Canada) is an artist who works in a variety of media. Turdalieva makes work that deals with the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented. She is interested in creating artworks that produce a contemplative or meditational response in the viewer. Turdalieva's work allows the viewer to see something familiar, or to be touched by the colour and bring some emotional memories
Her collected, altered and own artworks are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. By applying abstraction, she absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation. Her works are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
