Studio Visit - September 2017
Lauren Taylor received her B.F.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014, and lives and works in Nashville, TN. Her paintings tease out a narrative of vulnerability, intimacy and desire, while capturing details of a personal, lived experience. Rendered delicately, they are about absence as much as presence and create a tone of longing, while offering a sublime space between potential, personal moments. Her sculptural work holds ghost-like qualities, becoming abject props or stand-ins for the objects’ original, practical purpose, further implying the vulnerability inherent in an intimate relationship. Both humorous and trenchantly romantic, her works offer a deeply ontological and playful perspective. Taylor's solo exhibition pillow talk is currently on view at Bahamas Biennale, Detroit, MI.
