Brett J. Taylor is a print-based artist and art educator from South Florida, currently based in Columbus, Ohio. They earned their Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing from the University of Florida and their Master of Studio Arts in Printmaking from The Ohio State University.
Taylor’s auto-theory practice explores the denial and disruption of binaries through engaging with both personal narrative in conversation with Queer and Crip theory to acknowledge that we are all in a constant state of becoming. Employing Queer and Disability aesthetics, Taylor’s work challenges static definitions and destabilizes normative constructs that standardize the body’s relationship to built space.
Their work has been exhibited internationally including Field Projects, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Amos Eno Gallery, Agitator Gallery, the Eliot Museum, the Haugesund Museum of Art, and Shands Hospitals. They have 6 years of teaching experience in community and university print shops and is the Visiting professor of Printmaking at Denison University and Lead Printmaker at Chautauqua Visual Arts.
