Hello Gorgeous. So excited to share a little about my artwork!
I am an artist who is passionate about painting and posing. My most recent collections celebrate women and imperfect beauty. I draw inspiration from everyday life around me; streets I walk down, people I encounter, music I hear, and images I see on popular media. Experiences from personal modeling shoots and local style events also inform me during the creative process.
While looking at fashion magazines or scrolling through social sites, I find myself wondering who these women really are that model their bodies draped in designer clothing. I contemplate the background story of the confident nude who exposes her body for art.
The question “Who is she?” has motivated these collections.
My work is themed around women. They hold the gaze. They have the control. The ladies depicted are near symmetric, with a cross between chic graphic compositions and East Asian ink wash mark-making. The style of my female forms are inspired by Gauguin, Picasso, and my very own doodles!
My high fashion women with elongated necks, or my “long-neck ladies”, are painted on canvas, wood, or paper in both monochromatic and colorful palettes. Take a look around and Shop for your favorite artwork, or catch up on the latest Art by Natalie Taylor news on my Blog!
