Jeffery Glenn Taylor Artist Statement:
Im interested in layers of patterns. Hidden things in the obvious. In some ways I suppose, I really like the idea of the way we view Rothko’s work. The viewer is to be more meditative. Present, requiring more of a gazing of the imagery than an emotional response.
“Balanced anger, Even sadness, Solid love”
I am invested in the moments when ideas come forward. Never as planned but as real leaps of faith. I like moments when things release themselves and the moments leading up to those moments. I like work that describes itself to me after I’ve done it, like reading tea leaves. Imbuing work with the properties of a soothsayer or oracle. truth that is revealed weather or not the viewer can see these things or hear these things. That the work contains truths visible or not. sometimes I’m just unable to get to understand what’s right in front of my face and sometimes its easy but regardless, I’m compelled or slightly obsessed with the next chapter being revealed.
