• Kāryn Taylor

Jhana Millers is pleased to present their fifth solo exhibition with Kāryn Taylor, Applied Geometry. In this exhibition, Kāryn extends her longstanding interest in geometric abstraction with a new series of ambient wall works.

“Kāryn Taylor makes cast acrylic panels with coloured lines glowing from within – self-illuminating light boxes that look somewhat like paintings in shape and form … The interpretation offered here is that these works articulate, bring into being, or make us acutely aware of, a blurring of boundaries between things typically construed as being in opposition – physical and metaphysical, reality and illusion, logic and feeling, object and subject, image and object, object and space, simplicity and complexity. This might be merely an interpretation, a linguistic abstraction of a much less fathomable experience with light, line, colour and space, but, if you happen to read this, perhaps it might do something as you experience the work, become bound up in that experience, add to its complexity, reduce it to an existing body of knowledge, or both. The reality is that the experience will always be in excess of that which can be said about it, for it is a matter of flux and time, an evolving, involving and open reality, not just object and interpretation.”

An excerpt from the essay ‘Blurring the Line: The Art of Kāryn Taylor' by Edward Hanfling. The full essay can be found in her new catalogue Future Philosophies which accompanies her exhibition at The Suter Art Gallery.
