Old Ghosts and Empty Archetypes
William Booth Taylor
January – February, 2014
Trained as a painter, I perceive my prints and drawings as multi-layered constructions that suspend, preserve, and document actions within the picture frame. Beyond a sharp focus on mark making, coloration, and texture my recent works are meditations on personal and familial loss orchestrated through a variety of technologies, both high and low. As I am reluctant to accept icons passed down from previous generations, these new works reconstruct systems of belief in search for guidance, the nature of the archetype and a closer spiritual resolve.
