PM ARTIST: MELISA TAYLOR
The natural world is the blue-print for my work while allusions to past and contemporary culture inform its developmental stages. I develop an aesthetic of duality through the hybridization of divergent approches to art. In the studio, I get involved in a labour-intensive practice where multiple techniques are used.
