About katherine Taylor
Katherine Taylor (b. 1965 in Biloxi, Mississippi) studied at the Atlanta college of Art and Georgia State University. Taylor’s paintings examine the visual relationships that mediate our experiences of disaster in the natural world. Her exhibitions include the Quebec City Biennale; The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center; Diverseworks, Houston, TX; The Albany Museum of Art, Georgia; The Tubman Museum; Brenau University; and Marietta Cobb Museum of Art.
“Spillover looks to the engineered landscape and its impact on disaster in the environment. The works acknowledge a primary geometry in the spaces we traverse. Roadways, pools, bridges and waterways intersect our experience of the natural world and allow movement from fast to fixed. Through abstraction and representation the works exercise historical iterations of paintings ability to access a phenomenological state.”
– Katherine Taylor
“There is clearly great depth and diversity in Atlanta’s artistic pool. My selections include three dynamic female artists, all of whom explore the complex merging of abstraction and representation within painting, each in their own singular voice. I look forward to seeing how their exhibitions play a role in the ongoing vitality and plurality of painting today.”
