Sandy Taggart

The impulse to begin a drawing or painting comes from an emotional response to my subject. Philosophically, my work is rooted in Romanticism, Symbolism and early Expressionism. Formally, my focus is on line and color. I have paid close attention to the drawings of Raphael, Grunewald’s altarpiece,  Italian vaulted ceiling painting, the works of Goya, Turner, Redon, Degas, Blakelock, Schiele and the more contemporary idioms of Rivers, Dine, Oldenburg, Celmins, Hung Liu and Saville.  By distilling this visual information and integrating it with my own experience and practice, I approach a broad range of subjects to create images that speak of our emotional experiences from the mundane to the celestial.
