Transcendence by Observation

In attempting to describe sublime experiences in words, one feels inadequate or pretentious. Perhaps this is why landscape painters have taken on depicting the sublime. Claire Taylor follows this tradition by visually expressing her ineffable encounters and conversations with what humans refer to as “the natural world”—a named distinction for wildlife and landscapes as if we are separate from them. By sharing her experiences, Taylor challenges the construct of the nature/culture divide.

Exhibited at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in 2019. This exhibit included the Cosmos series and Sky Snakes series.
