I have been engaging my work with notions of repetition, graffiti and blur derived from the pictorial works of artists Jack Whitten, Sterling Ruby and Gerhard Richter. A synthesis of these interests is materializing in this latest body of work. "in City and in Forest" explores the assimilation of aerosol painting, pyrography and sanding techniques on wood. This ethereal series solicits our visual perception by suggesting a discoverable lattice of motifs emerging out of defacement and obscuration. This piece is lightly varnished with clean natural wood edges and comes ready to hang, horizontal or vertical.

Born 1977, Canada In Melisa Taylor’s work, the natural world acts as a blueprint while ideas are sourced from historical art and contemporary culture. She pursued studies in Marine Biology before training in the classical art of the Old Masters. She grew fascinated by the works of Flemish painters Vermeer and Rembrandt whose symbolic use of light influences her practice up to this day. Melisa explores the notion of the sublime through blur and precision. She develops an aesthetic of duality by hybridizing divergent approaches to art. Her studio practice is labor-intensive; commercial and electric tools are used to inject unpredictability into the painting gesture. She has assimilated to her visual language an eclectic multilayering process combining pyrography, sanding and detailed stencil compositions on wood. Embracing chance is a central idea in her work, equally so is meticulous control. This results in a subterranean tension that jeopardizes the ethereal appearance of her pieces; arbitrariness and mechanical execution fuse to create what she calls "systèmes faillibles" where spectral motifs seek to emerge out of obscuring lattices. Melisa's recent production has been shown internationally at art fairs in Tokyo, Seoul, Istanbul, Texas, NYC, Singapore, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Miami, Houston and Shanghai to name a few. Her work has been exhibited and acquired in private and corporate collections across North America, Europe and Asia.
