Taylor Stewart is a visual artist that currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BFA from Pratt Institute in 2017 and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2020.

My work operates as installation, drawing, painting and sculpture, but has a central interest in contemporary painting. Painting sets up a space for contemplation and acts as a theater, developing into a place for historical references. Exploring painting’s conceptual limits, complicated narratives are constructed, and motifs emerge from my subconscious leaning towards criticality and humor. By representing a visual lexicon of images and symbols I employ autobiographical references through gay iconography, Christian
imagery, sexuality and gender identity. Critically thinking through a feminist/queer lens, I am deconstructing and actively dealing with the complications of the history of painting. My work was made for a world lit only by fire, where the smell of roses is prominent, but only to mask the smell of blood.
