Art is a form of engagement and there are many ways to enjoy the paintings made by Laura Taylor.† They invite the viewer to listen carefully as they are seeped in a mysterious slow reveal; on one-hand a mirror to oneís own subconscious, and the other, an invitation to a luminous dream-like state which invites patience and stillness.
I like the way in which Taylor plays with partial recognitions, often providing an anchor that declines definitive answers, implying a deep sense of place without a beginning or an end, a memory palace without walls.
There is an easy confidence in the way the paint is layered.† It is lyrical and soft but also intentional and resolved.† Her paintings donít work because of what you think you know, they rely on your willingness to feel and be truthful with yourself.† Itís that authenticity that shines and welcomes the vulnerable viewer into the paintingís embrace.
