While Cindy Taylor has worked in a variety of mediums over her career, she finds oil is ideal for her current work. She has always been drawn to the organic, natural forms found in nature, and she studies plant and flower forms and how they change with the seasons.
Her paintings begin with a rough idea and frequently change during the process. Organic subjects ultimately move in a motion of “growing up.”
The title of this show, “New Earth,” was the title of her first painting that evolved through the synergism of Cindy’s imagination, and forms found in nature. The subsequent artworks are different versions of the original concept.
Cindy says it best: ”These are oil paintings of abstract landscapes, containing colorful organic forms, growing wildly in a vast array of strange configurations."
“New Earth/Alternate Versions” consists of 20 works of oil on canvas in various sizes, with frames by the artist. It opens Saturday, April 1, during Mineral Point's Gallery Night. Meet Cindy at the opening reception from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. The show runs through Thursday, April 27 at Wantoot Gallery in Mineral Point.
