Austyn Taylor, humorist narrative, ceramic sculpture
Austyn Taylor’s panpsychist humorist narrative has led to the creation of a world of repeated characters: lion, bull, horse, deer, duck, predator, prey etc. Each piece is a declaration, a statement; the works exist as an optimistic reframe from the banalities of western narrative.
Austyn Taylor hails from Rochester, NY. A nomadic sculptor who creates life-affirming works of alienation through the lens of sacred American cartoon tropes. Showing internationally as well as Miami Art Basel and SOFA in Chicago. An Alfred MFA in 2016 has been the catalyst for traveling the world and dozens of residencies; Guldagergaard, Denmark, CAFA, China, NCC Minneapolis, Sonoma Ceramics, CA, MSU Texas, VARDA Sausalito, CA etc.
As a teaching artist she believes there is nothing more brutally honest than working with clay, its natural authentic expression of touch is so influenced by our inner dialogs there is revealed our life’s novel in each piece.
