About

Pop art inspired abstract still life painting of periwinkle blue and pastel pink flowers against lime green and white leaf details, contrasted against a bold black background "Inside Flowers" by Joy Taylor in 2021 52 x 46 x 2 inches, currently unframed while the sides reveal the raw canvas so framing is optional Acrylic on Canvas Signature verso Wire is installed on the back for easy installation Excellent condition, ready to hang This pop art inspired abstract still life painting of bright flowers against a solid black background was painted by Hudson Valley artist, Joy Taylor, in 2021. Here, the natural forms are distilled into bold shapes with powerful hues of periwinkle, blue, pastel pink, and lime green. The bouquet is juxtaposed in a way that it seems to radiate from the center of the canvas, creating a fun use of perspective and depth. Taylor's colors ooze richness and her shapes are bold yet organic. Trained as a collage artist, she often employs unusual materials, spatial or color relationships to challenge viewers’ assumptions about the world around them. Artist Statement My work manipulates forms in a flattened picture plane, with imagination, rather than realistic observation, at play. I’ve built many a painting of a make-believe arrangement of flowers in a nonexistent vase on a table that’s just a curved arc, if it’s there at all. These days I’m zooming into the deep center of my imaginary composition, where I create large shapes in transformation: leaves become flat saucers, stems thin lines that turn into fat shapes, reflections an abyss of receding color. My flowers writhe, contort, sag, and subvert the very space they inhabit. They bridge the gap between reality and abstraction. I’ve made a few rules for myself to follow: Scale it Up (so I can go deeper into the composition) Simplify (for greater clarity)These rules keep me focused on my determination to give agency to the shapes I create. Still life paintings have always removed Nature from outdoors and rearranged it inside, so we can look at it more closely and ponder its process of change, from bud to flowering to decay. I take the genre in a new direction as I invent shapes and colors, re-creating Nature in my mind and on my canvas. It’s an external expression of an internal dialogue – what does this shape become if it’s foreshortened? How do petals spiral into being? Can I see through what’s on top to what’s beneath? What is a leaf-like shape that isn’t the color of a leaf? Is it something else?
