CLEVELAND, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A conversation surrounding E.D. Taylor's art, led by the artist, will take place Saturday, Feb. 7, at 2:00 p.m. Topics open for discussion include art and insanity, the Naked vs. the Nude, material experimentation and that certain something that makes a work of art zing.
As an artist consistently working with mixed mediums and varied subject matter, Taylor explores the human condition while searching for what it means to be a Renaissance woman in this contemporary world. An eclectic selection of influences who inform her work follows: La Roldana, Francisco De Goya, Eugene Delacroix, Alice Neel, Louise Bourgeois, Betye Saar, Bessie Harvey, Faith Ringgold, Joe Brainard, Liliana Porter, Christopher Pekoc, Janine Antoni, and Tom Friedman.
Taylor also uses her art as a vehicle to come to terms with her diagnosis with bipolar disorder in late 2013.
Born and raised non-Mormon in Salt Lake City, Taylor's art career began with clandestine crayon scribblings on her parents' freshly painted walls. Eventually earning her degree in Painting and Drawing from the University of Utah, she next became a graduate student at Rhode Island School of Design. Since earning her Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from RISD, her work has been seen in diverse venues including PIEROGI Gallery Brooklyn's Flat Files, Ingenuity Fest, and the Erie Art Museum.
