Malaspina Printmakers is pleased to present new experimental video and print works by Andrea Taylor. Referencing late nineteenth century photographic depictions of movement—such as the motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge and the serpentine dance of the Lumiere brothers—the works focus on form, sensation, and temporality to explore our collective memory of images.
Andrea Taylor received an MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2014. In 2015, she completed a month long collaborative residency, artist talk and exhibition with Margery Theroux at Miranda Arts Project Space, in Port Chester, NY. In 2011, she accepted an invitation to make prints with master printer Chris Dunnett at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in New York, NY. Taylor teaches in Continuing Studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Recent exhibitions include Port City Gallery in Portland, OR; Michael Bjornson Studio in Vancouver; DownStreet Art in North Adams, MA; Moving Art at 1000 Parker in Vancouver; and Portraits of Brief Encounters, a group show curated by Elliat Albrecht at ThisOpenSpace in Vancouver. She has a solo show upcoming at Back Gallery Project in Vancouver.
