In conjunction with the Citywide Celebration of Women Artists this week's featured Sapphire & Crystals member is Pearlie Taylor.
Pearlie Taylor is an abstract expressionist artist of over forty years who work primarily in acrylics. She has worked in a variety of mediums but chooses acrylics for the depth of color and her wet in wet painting style.
Her initial focus of portraiture and landscapes changed during middle age as she began to gravitate toward abstract art, where she found her passion as an abstract painter.
Her goal is to create paintings which are interesting, provocative, and beautiful, without the appearance of deliberation, intent, or planning. She believes the use of color can affect a conscious and positive change in individuals, creating a “subliminal communication".
