Crowdfunded Textile Art, Degree Exhibition
"Dedication and determination"
Memory and death explored in exhibition at The Crypt Gallery, London
Oxford artist Katie Taylor has successfully reached her stretch target of £700 through crowdfunding to hold an exhibition of work at The Crypt Gallery in London. Katie Taylor has been studying with The Open College of the Arts for 6 years whilst raising two children and working part time. This exhibition will be the culmination of her degree but is not a requirement.
The exhibition titled Latent is an exploration of memory and individuality in death by using impressions left as a metaphor for loss. Impressions remind us of the original and we can see what was there but we are marked by absence.
Katie Taylor's work explores the medium of textiles in a non-traditional way, using many materials not usually associated with textile art such as salt, clay and animal casings.
This is an ambitious solo show which highlights the dedication and determination of this artist.
• The exhibition will be held in St Pancras Crypt Gallery, Dukes Road Entrance (off Euston Road), London, NW1 2BA
• The private view will be held on 13th January from 6-9pm
• The exhibition will continue on 14th January 10am-5pm
Katie Taylor is the part time manager of Magdalen Road Artist Studios and is looking to continue her education with a Masters course next year.
