Featured Artist
Austyn Taylor

I sculpt and draw characters. Drawing from a variety of sources including American hand drawn animation, animist artifacts, graffiti and the internet. I sculpt a character in clay then either glaze it, leave it raw or draw on the surface with pencil. I aim to make ‘respectable’ sculpture in that I pay special attention to volume, form, proportion and selective draftsmanship. I also aim for sophisticated humor, honesty and objective self-knowledge within the work. Austyn Taylor received her MFA in 2016 from Alfred University in New York, USA. Currently she is the anonymous emerging artist resident at Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis, MN.
