Flora and Fauna is an exploration of the personalities and impressions of the world around us, reflected in the space somewhere between reality and our imagination. These ideas are represented in the form of abstract, mixed media paintings of Tayla’s “emotional landscapes” (the Flora) and birds (the Fauna).
Tayla Naden maintains a strong focus on the process of her art rather than the end product. Often using mixed media techniques and materials for two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces, she allows the project to create itself along the way, working intuitively with the chosen medium and subject. Each piece includes many layers and stages which are represented with different colors, shapes and textures. It is common for her work to continue developing over several weeks at a time as she switches back and forth between projects.
