ABOUT THE ARTIST
Healing and Mindfulness through Ethereal Abstract Expressions & Haikus
Taylor Bailey Douglass is an abstract expressionist painter and mixed media artist, based in Atlanta, GA. Creating spiritually and environmentally charged mixed media abstracts of calming cool colors, Douglass’ work explores introspection and the path to enlightenment through expression, encouraging the viewer to reflect and look within to be a positive force in the world. Douglass is inspired by elements, colors, and energies in the natural world and how they change the way we feel and react. Her ethereal works include organic materials such as copper, cotton, jute, and wood. Through the use of blending techniques, layering, and knotting, her current mixed media works explore creation, connection, and divinity. Each piece, paired with an original haiku, defines moments with the source though experiences of grounding, healing, and reflection.Her hope is that her colorful work will transfer therapeutic frequencies, bringing awareness to the role of your inner being and human consciousness, as it pertains to living in harmony on earth with all living things.
“My creative process is an intimate, spiritual, and sacred ritual, beginning with a cleansing of the space. This practice, along with music, puts me into a meditative state where I can begin painting. I then allow my energy to lead my brushes across each panel. With every stroke, a visual language is born. I am inspired by natural elements and frequencies, so I incorporate them into my work. Through special color blending techniques, layering, and added elements of texture, each composition evolves over time until it has achieved an aesthetic that visually portrays my emotive energy. The way we experience the world around us is a true reflection of our most inner self. My artwork explores this belief. Working with mostly cool tones, I believe that color has the power to heal, soothe, renew, and help us radiate. I want people to take a journey to self awareness, inspiring them to seek balance, peace, and a higher level of consciousness."
