Description

No Ordinary Days surveys Maggie Taylor’s work from 1998 until 2012. Taylor, trained as a photographer, largely abandoned the camera for another light-sensitive device, the flatbed scanner. She begins her process with a found object--often a nineteenth-century photograph--and using image manipulation software like Adobe Photoshop® she transforms the original image, layering and manipulating her palette of collected visual information in a meticulous process than pushes the limits of her medium. The result is a surrealistic, often painterly, montage distinguished by vibrant color and a rich symbolism.

Taylor’s striking combinations of history and imagination invite the viewer to engage in a process of both discovery and recollection. The genre is often described as altered or fabricated photography. Although Taylor’s work is autobiographical--informed by childhood memories, anxieties, and television consumption--it defies easy interpretation.

Maggie Taylor is a digital artist who has exhibited her work throughout the United States and abroad. Her images are featured in Maggie Taylor’s Landscape of Dreams, Solutions Beginning with A, and Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Visit her website at www.maggietaylor.com
