"Life & Death Disaster in Purple & Green (Flower Disaster with Pills)" is a 22” x 30” original painting on paper and is part of my "Luxurious Disaster: A 21st Century Tale of Love, Fame & Tragedy" series of pop artworks. This painting is a dark homage to the breakdown of the American Dream. Life, death, happiness, addiction, overmedication, memory and our own very dreams are represented in this series of conscious paintings. I have created a loosely connected group of artworks which take as their subjects vintage advertising images, references to mid-century pop artists, medicine and prescription drugs, the Pharma industry, Mickey Mouse, 20th Century Americana, the human body, consumer products and fashion luxury brands, politics and the concept of failing technology through glitched computer data corruption. These original hand-painted and silkscreened, unique one-of-a-kind artworks appropriate source material from iconic artists such as Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst, social media, pop culture, art history, 19th century medical text book anatomy etchings and the local shopping mall. I use oil paint, enamel and screen printing as a means to fix these images on Fabriano Premium 300gsm heavy Italian cotton paper which is mould-made and acid free, guaranteeing extremely long conservation over time. These works are a critical take on the haves versus the have-nots while maintaining a sense of humor. I am attempting to fuse separate worlds together — the explosive and visual power of wealth, fashion and money juxtaposed against the realities of life, love and death. The result? Hopefully art that takes collectors to new and sometimes nostalgic and introspective places.

Taylor Smith focuses on blending social awareness with science, mathematics, contemporary oil painting and artistic disciplines including silkscreen printing and analog film photography. Within her work, Smith seeks to combine abstraction and figuration with elements of science, traditional still life and portraiture. To accomplish this, she not only uses a wide variety of materials and mediums including reclaimed silkscreen frames, discarded analog technology, luxury brands and commercial packaging, but she also incorporates mathematics, organic chemistry, mechanics and photography into her work. Smith also works with 8mm film and other analog film mediums to blend the practice of filmmaking and painting. Her recent work explores the relationship between pop culture, luxury brands, political upheaval and crisis. Taylor's intention is to blend painting with elements of technology, film, chemistry and mechanics to create an unexpected and transformative experience.
