Challenging the viewer to participate in an experiential encounter with the unseen world, Karyn Taylor’s work explores themes that act as an invitation to engage with concepts that bridge a trajectory between the exactness of geometric forms and the fleshy materialism of the body.

No electricity, no tubes, no wires. Taylor’s Perspex forms manipulate the refractive qualities of matter, allowing light to reverberate. A kind of internal alchemy, as if the works themselves have been lit from within.

Exhibiting at Anna Pappas Gallery this October, Implicate Order is an exhibition of works that continues and expands Taylor’s commitment to the state of matter; considering how light, materials and particles behave in aesthetic terms. On the walls of the gallery, such works see light and colour operating in a relationship whereby lines crossing the surfaces of the works glow, as if they have been lit from within.

The notion of an implicate order which informs the materialisation of Taylor’s work appears to operate within an understanding of the world whereby objects and experience are made manifest within structures of logic, science, language and mathematics. However, whilst these structures speak to solidity and experience, a Bergsonian framework posits these as existing within a world where there can be nothing fundamental, immutable and pure.

As a result of engagements with quantum physics, materiality and experience, Taylor transforms the experience of viewing within the gallery space as one that challenges the material binarism of object and viewer.

During  2017, Taylor exhibited her refined material structures at Personal Structures, which ran concurrently to the Venice Biennale in Italy. She also participated for the second time at Art Athena 2017 International Art Fair, Athens, Greece (courtesy Anna Pappas Gallery, Australia) and in Sydney Contemporary in 2015 and 2017 (courtesy Sanderson Contemporary, New Zealand). Taylor recently won a Merit Award in the 2017 Parkin Drawing Prize.
