Denice Taylor Rinks Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement My work is an expression of life and all that influences it. I use the elements of color, design and composition to create feeling and emotion. My paintings show how life has given me experience and wisdom in different doses. I have created many series of pieces that are meant to share my visions and help you relate to your own life experiences.
Even though elements of color theory dictate my design and composition, my work is somewhat abstract, spontaneous and has the characteristics of the techniques of automatism or automatic art. I begin with a well thought out and researched concept, but it is within the spontaneous brushwork that I find the insight or vision of the piece. This form of abstraction has given my work more of a unique metaphysical sense rather than a representational one.
