Joy Taylor

Joy Taylor’s flowers bridge the gap between reality and abstraction.They “writhe, contort, sag and subvert the very space they inhabit.” The artist has two rules, “scale it up” and “simplify”, which allows her to “zoom into the deep center of the composition” where she “creates large slopes of transformation.”

“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.

Taylor’s paintings are part of many prestigious collections, and her Public commissions include the NY MTA. She has also won a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant.
