March 6 through April 6
Sylvia Taylor Collage
ValleyArts Firehouse Private Common Space
580 Forest Street, Orange
Sylvia Taylor, an observer and lifetime artist, creates one-of-a-kind collages. Her collages have been described as rich, mysterious and complex; thought provoking, with a hint of intrigue below the surface.
Sylvia is inspired by unexpected beauty; texture imposed on the manmade by time and the elements. Her collages are colorful with texture and depth created in the layering technique she uses. A variety of handmade and appropriated papers are attached with archival glue to an acid free watercolor paper base, with additional touches of color via acrylic paint. Using a consistent, contained format for the collages allows for abundant discovery for the maker and viewer.
Collages are made in Sylvia Taylor’s studio. She resides in an artist live/work space in a renovated 1902 Firehouse in the Valley Arts District, Orange, NJ.
May be viewed during Firehouse Gallery open hours or by appointment.
