Imogen Taylor’s practice seeks to illuminate the modernist painting movement’s embedded relationship with LGBTQ+ histories. Her reclamations of modernist tropes emerge on parallelogram shaped canvases to create a sense of disorientation for the viewer through queer phenomenology. Taylor believes that parallel to the physical act of painting, queerness functions as a medium activated by her body.

Through sculpture, textile and installation, Pauline Shaw’s work questions how personal history and cultural knowledge is acquired, preserved and rendered. Her practice draws upon personal experience and perception processed through material transformations–felted wool, cast glass, ceramics. She examines historical and modern representations of memory, identity and lineage through the lenses of scientific, spiritual or cultural belief systems.
Pauline Shaw has exhibited work at Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore; Gagosian, New York; and Almine Rech Gallery, Paris, among others.pauline-shaw.com
