Katherine Taylor was born in Biloxi, MS, a city shaped by decades of natural disasters, thus her work in painting often examines visual relationships that mediate our experience and response to destruction in the natural world. Three times featured in New American Paintings, her works are the topic for review in numerous books, catalogs and publications including Art Papers, The Boston Globe and recently published Painted Landscapes: Contemporary Views. Taylor's work has been exhibited in the Quebec City Biennale; Diverseworks, Houston TX; The Albany Museum of Art, Albany, GA; Marietta Cobb Museum of Art; and in Atlanta, at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center; the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the High Museum of Art. Taylor is a Working Artist Project fellow with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. She received a Vermont Studio Fellowship in 2013, and a VSC Zeta Orionis Fellowship in 2014. Taylor resides in Atlanta, where she maintains a studio practice, exhibits, teaches and participates in the larger arts community.
