Kāryn Taylor is an installation artist who lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. She holds an MFA (First Class) from Elam School of Art, Auckland and a BFA (Hons) from Massey University, Wellington. Taylor exhibits in New Zealand and internationally. Recent shows include Personal Structures, Palazzo Mora, Venice and Art Arthina Contemporary Art Fair, Athens. She has been a finalist in the National Contemporary Art Awards, Wallace Art Awards and Lola Anne Tunbridge Award.
Her work explores the space between the immaterial and the material, the transitional state between energy and matter. Taylor’s recent solo exhibitions speculatively explore the connections between art and the ideas that structure our reality, asking large questions. In Taylor’s wall-based Perspex box-like objects, shadowy form or coloured line create a luminous exploration of the contained space. Projected geometric shapes in the recent spatial explorations add another layer of complexity to the work.
