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 March 21.

| 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 about the exhibit call (916) 278-6744.
