Shefon Taylor (b. 1988, Wilmington, DE) has rooted her practice in work that draws on narratives concerning longing, rememory, and the anterior.
Interrogating personal definitions of femininity and womanhood, Taylor began her creative journey as a visual artist in 2017, using found images to explore the opaque and poetic themes to arrive at an understanding of her present life, the lives of the women before her, and the possibilities of an imagined future.
Her process and practice are informed by the discovery and affirmation, “may the women with whom I share blood, speak my name and never find themselves alone.”
Taylor is self-represented outside of Los Angeles, CA where she is represented by ParisTexasLA. The artist works and lives in Wilmington, Delaware.
