August 30 – October 27, 2018
In an exploration of geometric abstraction that tends toward minimalism, Susie Taylor uses the grid, inherent to the weaving process, as both a jumping off point and problem solving tool. “My work is a highly scripted improvisation,” says Taylor, requiring her to break down complexity and impose a new visual order on materials. The nature of the horizontal/vertical relationship of threads on a loom provides a structure for creative practice that engages technical expertise and poses a visual puzzle to be solved as she composes each piece. In conjunction with Taylor’s workshop: Weaving at Painting.
Taylor currently teaches workshops in complex weave structures, and is a freelance designer for the commercial market. She maintains a studio practice in San Jose, California.
