CURRENT EXHIBIT AT MOBERG GALLERY:
"The Wilderness Experience Between Heaven and Earth"
Exhibit through March 23
I use earth as an artistic medium because I am drawn to its tones, colors, and textures. With earth as my medium I am able to express a non-objective visual language that is unique, natural and soulish. I am intrigued with earth’s mysterious bond to life, the cycles of the seasons and death. Similar to the cycle of life, my artwork begins and ends as earth. - Madai Taylor
