Alison Elizabeth Taylor “paints” with wood. Trained as a painter, Taylor uses thin wood veneers to create collaged, trompe l’oeil images. Her work constitutes a modern update of the ancient craft of marquetry or inlaid wood intarsia, in which various colored materials are cut to form an image. She first explored the art form with a friend’s grade-school photograph, and has since expanded her work to more abstract arrangements of various colors and grains of wood, meant to evoke the battered plywood sheets left on construction sites around New York City. Taylor has also returned to her roots in pieces that combine marquetry trees based on photographs taken in New York with fiery skyscapes shot in the Southwest.
