Karyn Taylor, Vesica Piscis, 2018. Acrylic, edition of 5, 40cm x 40cm x 6cm. Courtesy of the artist and Sanderson Contemporary, Auckland.
In Shape of a Circle, Karyn Taylor continues to explore ideas around geometry and its ability to hold an influencing resonance. Taylor is also interested in geometry’s ability to describe the intrinsic order of the universe.
Taylor takes the square and the circle (a representation of matter and creation) as her building blocks for a new encoding of space and time. The square is thought to be representative of the earth, the physical world, matter and the masculine. The circle represents creation and unity, oneness and the female. It is said that the circle and the square contain 360º of all truths; Taylor takes these elements, these truths, and sets out to explore alternate descriptions of our multidimensional universe.
Exhibition opens: 5:30–7:30pm Tuesday 30 July 2019
