Camilla Taylor, Artist
Born in 1981 in Hayward, California, and raised in raised in Provo, Utah, Camilla Taylor attended the University of Utah and received a BFA in 2006, and an MFA from California State University at Long Beach in 2011, both with an emphasis in printmaking.
Taylor is recognized for their monochromatic and intensely introspective works on paper and sculpture which utilize figurative and architectural forms. Taylor’s artworks reflect the viewer’s internal lives as well as collective issues we experience as a society. Taylor uses a variety of materials, working in ceramic, printmaking, glass, and fiber, allowing the work to dictate the medium it should be realized in.
An accomplished artist exhibiting in traditional gallery spaces, they also create installations in intimate and unusual locations, such as site-specific works in a swimming pool, desert garden, and other locations.
Taylor lives in Los Angeles, CA, with their partner and 3 cats, and teaches printmaking and sculpture at UCLA and Occidental College.
