"Renaissance Disaster in Blue & Yellow" was created on a custom birch wood panel with oil, ink, transfer, gold leaf, enamel and art resin. There are themes I am expressing in this series of work of corrupted memory and aestheticizing these corruption errors: morbidity and destruction next to growth and regeneration, rampant consumerism contrasted with historic events, conflicts between control and unpredictability, disassembling and re-appropriating the systems that surround us, technological chaos versus human balance — or vice versa. This repurposing and deliberate corruption of materials through pixel-glitch painting and historic events speaks directly to our collective memory loss. And just as this visual corruption speaks to our memory loss, incorporating luxury brand logos represents our very personal effort to represent ourselves as perfect in an imperfect world.

I chose this medium and the subject matter as a way to express what I see as a world coming apart, obsessed by power, corruption, luxury, wealth and technology.

About The Artwork

"Renaissance Disaster in Blue & Yellow" was created on a custom birch wood panel with oil, ink, digital transfer, gold leaf, enamel and art resin. There are themes I am expressing in this series of work of corrupted memory and aestheticizing these corruption errors: morbidity and destruction next to growth and regeneration, rampant consumerism contrasted with historic events, conflicts between control and unpredictability, disassembling and re-appropriating the systems that surround us, technological chaos versus human balance — or vice versa. This repurposing and deliberate corruption of materials through pixel-glitch painting and historic events speaks directly to our collective memory loss. And just as this visual corruption speaks to our memory loss, incorporating luxury brand logos represents our very personal effort to represent ourselves as perfect in an imperfect world.

As a contemporary artist Taylor Smith explores social awareness through abstraction and figuration with elements of science, traditional still life and portraiture. Smith uses a wide variety of materials and mediums including reclaimed silkscreen frames, discarded analog technology, luxury brands and commercial packaging. She also incorporates mathematics, organic chemistry, mechanics and photography into her work. Frequently working with 8mm film and other analog film mediums, Smith blends the practice of filmmaking and painting. Her recent work explores the relationship between pop culture, luxury brands, political upheaval and crisis to create an unexpected and transformative experience.
