Craig Taylor’s abstract oils on canvas and mixed-media works on paper are built up in layers of small gestures and amorphous shapes. The use of bright and contrasting color has become a hallmark of Taylor’s work. His compositions are the result of improvisation, though they frequently manifest in registers with soft geometry; some works appear to have faintly figural forms almost resembling writing. His influences span a broad range, from Henri Matisse to Carroll Dunham, Pat Steir, and Peter Saul. Other works, like Field Augmentation and Gesture-Driven-Interface, refer directly to the influence of Terry Winters. To create his works, Taylor has used a combination of graphite pencil, colored pencil gouache, markers, and collage.
