The natural world is the blueprint Melisa Taylor-Metzger’s work while allusions to past and contemporary culture inform its developmental stages.
Multiple techniques are used: impasto texturing, collage of found objects, stain washes, powder dusting, torching, spray painting and stencilling.
In the tradition of Process art, Taylor-Metzger seeks the presence of external variables such as natural physical properties, weight or wind for instance, to inject unpredictability. “As I stand witnessing the unexpected organic processes, I find myself intervening with appropriate timing,” she says.
