Taylor’s paintings document the seemingly insignificant architectural details and reflected light that often go unnoticed in ordinary objects. Her subjects include glass jars, perfume bottles and vases as well as details of painted surfaces, marbles and other reflective objects. By recording the aesthetic properties – such as shape, form, light and shadow, color and depth – of these everyday artifacts, she preserves images of contemporary material culture.
Taylor is a native of Western Massachusetts and holds a degree in studio art from Mount Holyoke College. She lives in Whately, Mass., and has a studio in Easthampton. She is also a quilt artist.
