Sallie Taylor's paintings are based on a journey of expressing the human condition in metaphysical, and often, surreal forms. Her paintings make synchronistic connections, as Jung described it, from the subconscious to natural and man-made forms encountered in her conscious, daily experiences. Taylor believes that art expresses the symbolic forms of the intuitive connection to significant places and things that represent the human experience. Breton, the leader of the Surrealist Movement stated, "The Marvelous is always beautiful, anything marvelous is beautiful, in fact only the marvelous is beautiful." Through painting, Taylor searches for this marvelous, archetypical beauty. She adds that it is, ultimately, our minds that are marvelous and the symbolic forms that spring forth from the artist, innately beautiful.
Taylor, a retired art educator and arts administrator, now lives and works in Highlands, NC, with her husband, also an artist and a potter.
