Symmetry, Order, Perfection and Beauty

Seven Paintings at UNM
August 24th to September 13th , 2008
Public Reception: Thursday, September 11th from 4 to 6 pm

Seven large paintings by Cydney Taylor hang in the UNM-Taos Art Lobby. The paintings are from her first body of work, an eighteen year focus on colour as subject. Each painting represents a different series of work, each using a different visual format to explore ideas about symmetry, order, perfection and beauty. The common function of the formats was to hold colour without visual distractions. Motifs of hue, color saturation and tone are used for visual presence. Taylor’s work embodies timeless painting concerns first seen in the sixties and seventies. The show runs until September 13 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the UNM-Taos Klauer Campus.
