Jaimee Taborda creates work that explores the connection between the earthly and the divine. An act of devotion, this visible prayer represents the artist’s personal journey and her walk with God.
Through experiences in nature, Jaimee has made a sacred connection to trees— trees that grow tall and strong out of the imperfect earth and reach high into the sky pointing towards the heavens. Trees have become a symbol of the personal struggles between earthly and heavenly desires and a reminder of communion between the ephemeral and the eternal. Developing organically in her work, the circle has grown to symbolize the completeness of God, his omnipresence and glory. With this visual language, the artist inhabits an artistic world for which she creates a pictorial means of prayer and meditation.
