About The Artwork

My molecular & chemical still life work documents my interest in science, nature, organic chemistry and architecture. My work is a calculated, modern interpretation of traditional still life, elements of graphic design and abstract expressionism. Bringing the still life paintings of the Old Masters firmly into the 21st century, I carefully construct my own abstract version of the classical still life painting which has traditionally featured a skull, bowl of fruit, wine bottle or possibly a candle with smoke on a table. With this particular piece, I added the figure of a man to introduce an unexpected element into the composition. Chemical detail adds a layer of composition and nods to the meaning and relationship between the subjects. Some of the materials I choose to work with nod to the meaning of certain objects. For instance, my use of charcoal is intended to impart a sense of candle smoke. These assemblages may seem radically different from the familiar still life, but both draw their inspiration from Old Master subjects, and both are visual deceptions that reveal themselves if the viewer invests the time to gaze deeper.

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.
