Taylor Sanders is an artist from Louisville, Ky. She studied at Spalding University earning a BFA degree in Interdisciplinary Sculpture with a minor in African American Studies. With no specific medium, her main focus is integrating found three-dimensional objects with multiple sculptural processes, techniques and materials while addressing relevant topics in history and in today’s society.
The purpose of her recent work is to confront racial and social issues through appropriated everyday items with installation. These research-based installations and sculptures are reflecting upon historical issues. By using material culture to make connections between slavery, the Jim Crow era, the Civil Rights movement, mass incarceration and other contemporary social issues, the goal is to raise awareness and encourage viewers to reconsider their personal views and connections to these events.
