Many have become disconnected from the natural world with a sense of entitlement for the resources the natural world offers us. Humans feel entitled to dominate and control animals with impunity. Taylor’s work is centered on adorning the surface of an animal’s skin, to give value and importance after it has been diminished to a mere commodity. She pulls from both animal agricultural practices as well as her own lived experience with the treatment of animals within her vernacular. Taylor uses contemporary craft processes to investigate subverting notions of adornment by creating visual metaphors through surface application and intentional visceral color choices. Embellishments juxtapose beauty and grotesque and are intended to bring the viewer back to themselves and their own body.
