Mélisa Taylor
Quebec, Canada

The natural world is the blueprint for Melisa’s work, while allusions to past and contemporary culture inform its development. She approaches her artwork by developing her own hybridization of artistic practices. Melisa relies on commercial tools such as blow torches and electrical sanders to create her work, in addition to other labor-intensive methods. By exploring the assimilation of aerosol painting, pyrography, and sanding on wood, Melisa produces unique abstract art that is simultaneously geometric and organic.

Love this work. The geometry and cross-hatching + the assymetry are lovely. Wishing you the best.

Just want to say that I love this painting as well as the rest of your work. The paintings are beautiful and bold, which is something I rarely say.
