Curator's Notes: Spotlight on Nadine Gordon-Taylor

Nadine Gordon-Taylor, Multiple Spheres of Consciousness

Nadine Gordon-Taylor paints her access to an authentic spiritual awareness.  This is an extraordinary gift enriched by her constant study of art history, visual arts, philosophy and symbolism. Nadine earned her doctorate at Columbia  University, Teacher's College and her MFA from Long Island University, C.W. Post campus.  In addition, she studied painting and human anatomy at Art Students League and lithography at the famous [Robert] Blackburn Print Studio.  As an undergraduate at Hunter College, she studied with the renowned Post-Minimalist artist Robert Morris.  For Bosom Bodies, Nadine contributed Multiple Spheres of Conscious and explained its Intuitive Message: "There are things that you have always wanted to do and never thought you could.  The Blue Rose has appeared to you at this time of your life to communicate that it is possible to do and have what you want.  Believe in miracles and be open to them appearing to you in non-traditional ways.  This is a time of awakening . . . "    The Blue Rose in many ways is a nurturing symbol, a cluster of petals that becomes a cosmic breast.

Nadine Gordon-Taylor, Balance: Seeing Through the Eye of Illusion

Multiple Spheres of Consciousness is part of Nadine's Portal series, which includes Balance: Seeing through the Eye of Illusion.  To understand her work, the artist explains: "I consider myself a 'translator' helping viewers tap into a wider spectrum of consciousness.  My art is like a gateway to the invisible. Stepping through the opening unites you with a higher consciousness.  As you experience colors, shapes, and objects in my art, you activate and align to inherent geometries of vibration that resonate and confirm our consciousness."   Nadine sells her original painting and reproductions of her original paintings at The Third Eye Studio at 108 South Division Street in Peekskill.
