2012 Artists

Alexis Doiron


Anna Taylor

Anna Taylor is a Halifax based artist and curator. She uses techniques of decorative handicraft such as tatting, lace-making, miniature painting, and crocheting to explore the relationship between the history and role of domestic craft and the institution of fine art. Her current and ongoing work, Bundle Men are a series of soft sculptures of small stout characters that are not quite animal and not quite human. Playing with themes of the familiar and the uncanny, these figures are layered in hand crafted and naturally dyed clothing and exist as part of an ever-growing silent mythology of decorative affluence and simple pleasures.
