CSUS exhibit brushed by Zen
"Zen Brush," an exhibit of oriental brush and ink
on rice paper by Marie Taylor, is on display at the California
State University, Sacramento's University Union Gallery through
| The exhibit features 27 of Taylor's black and white prints.
Some of the pieces are based on classic Chinese and Japanese
master's works, others are inspired by images found in nature.
All display a simple, strong use of line and space.
"The interplay of positive and negative areas invites
the viewer to explore the energy expressed and bring his or
her own intuition to the experience," she says.
Taylor's work has been featured in a variety of group shows
throughout California. A one time executive director of the
Lincoln Arts and Culture Foundation and board member of the
Matrix Arts Gallery, Taylor is a current member of the Arts
Council of Placer County.
"In my art, I seek to allow the brush and ink to speak
without interference," Taylor says. "My goal is
to simplify form and go straight to the heart of things. This
minimalist approach may require hundreds of attempts for each
completed work, for each stroke stands alone and is unalterable."
The gallery is open from 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday -
Friday and 5 - 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. For information
