Nature Present...Creating Joy in a World of Conflict!

Kate Taylor's avatar Kate Taylor Vote Code: 64937

Kate Taylor is an abstract artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western where she was taught painting by internationally-renowned artist, Paterson Ewen. “Humanity is connected to nature; our place within it and the energy we derive from this relationship. As the world around us becomes more and more fraught with stress and uncertainty, there is an even deeper need to connect with the earth and consciously integrate joy in our lives." Working solely with a palette knife, I mix my colors directly on the panel. The stained wood grain becomes an integral part of the composition and, like a watercolor, is left untouched. This creates a dynamic play of positive and negative spaces. The resin enhances the colors but also reflects the viewer, incorporating them into the piece; encouraging the viewer to be encompassed by nature and to be more thoughtful of their place within it.
