Mixed Media: collage of various types of printmaking on canvas integrated with acrylic painting represented and exhibited in many fine art galleries and public exhibits.
The acrylic painting involves layers of iridescent and iridescent interference colors that are designed to shift and change in changing light conditions and viewing angles. This is intended to create a sense of animation and sense of wonder experienced and witnessed in nature. The subtle shift of cloud and sky shapes and color, the reflection on the water and the translucent vision through the water, the flickering and shifting of leaves in a breeze, these are the inspirations that Douglas E. Taylor creates from. The collage elements are various types of printmaking fragments and Oriental rice papers. The printmaking fragments are from his processes described below.
