Tellurider Jane Taylor Opens Show In Germantown, NY
Taylor is no stranger to Telluride collectors. Her shows at the Telluride Gallery of Fine Art and at the Scott White Gallery used to sell out. Taylor's subject matter evolved over the years from abstractions suggesting worlds coming apart to the bounty of the table and garden, summarizing the arc of the artist's life. Insider poop aside, by channeling her physical experiences of the outside world, each tour de force painting became about making the commonplace look uncommonly good. Something that straddled the border between memory and metaphor, reality and illusion. Something transcendent.
"When I paint, I think about what it is to feel or hold the form. I push the color to create life, energy, and sometimes whimsy, but never to betray the sense of real physical presence," explained Taylor. "And recently I have become interested in eliminating solvents from my work. The medium I make is thick, viscous and sensual, adding another layer of tactile experience to the craft of making a painting."
When captured by a brush as vital, vibrant and confident as Taylor's has become, what is normally transitory – real food rots or turns rancid and socks get picked up and put in to a laundry basket – becomes frozen in time, immortalized.
