Taylor Powell

Taylor Powell is a junior BA painting and printmaking student at UNL. Inspired by her own life experiences, she creates drawings, paintings, and prints of abstract shapes often with vibrant colors. Her works are small, meticulous, and intuitive in form, involving a self made symbolic visual language. Although the works themselves function as a personal exploration of the self, the color and shape combinations and technical aspects offer a wide variety of ways in which viewers are able to interact with them. Their variable interpretations are a conscious understanding in their creation as Taylor attempts to create works that are digestible yet simultaneously represent the essence of her as the artist. Ultimately, she focuses on a technical discipline in the use of my materials while also creating imagery that is playful and implements distortion.
