Johnny Taylor  Bio    


I do not work from sketches, photos or reference points.  My work is born of an image in the mind, an intention, a concept.  I use the act of painting to propel the work.  The paint is applied by varying means and utensils in response to the surfaces I am working with. Spontaneous marks and gestures define the image and the work emerges as a fusion of idea and action.


My compositions incorporate distillations of visual phenomena the city, structures, patterns of trees and nature however I do not seek to represent specific subjects.  I am responding to the energies, forces and indefinite aspects of an active matrix.  I believe there is something of the alchemist in the painter.
