about 

“I try to understand the world through

understanding people”.

Anita Taylor.

   

My work is preoccupied with the human form. Covid-19 has focused my attention on the themes of isolation, identity, empathy and mortality.  

 

During the past year of lockdown I have found ways to convey a view of humanity’s shared trauma. I have represented our experiences of the pandemic, which have both divided and united us under a blanket of fear and trepidation on the one hand and compassion for strangers on the other.  

 

I use charcoal, woodcut and oil paint to explore and excavate our shared, common experiences.
