Biography from Galleries Maurice Sternberg:
Artist’s Statement:  
I make my artwork to understand and reflect. I use it to learn to live better, and to inspire those around me.  The majority of the time I don’t know what the sculpture will look like.   can doodle, draw, daydream, but the solution can’t be imagined.  It reflects life, sometimes you just have to jump in or you risk staying put or even worse, going back to trip over that same branch…

Humor makes for an important part of my life. I use it in my artwork the same way one might make a joke to diffuse a difficult situation at work or start to sing a funny song after a long day. Also because it’s fun, fun to make something so funny that it makes you tip your head back and laugh out loud.

The work starts with a stick that I usually find while out on a run or traveling. The stick conveys gesture or a feeling resonant with a current issue in my life.  However, the problem becomes how do I get it back to my studio?  Do I pick it up and keep running or come back for it later?  I try not to make a habit of taking sticks unless I have a relatively easy way of getting them home.  But sometimes I find that perfect stick and it just has to come back with me.  More than once I have found myself at the post office, mailing sticks back to my studio in Spain.

Biography from Galleries Maurice Sternberg:
Katherine Taylor was born in 1974 in Midland, Texas.  She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire.  From there, she traveled to Melbourne, Australia and studied at Melbourne University/Victorian College of Fine Arts where she received an MFA.

Katherine is a sculptor, currently working in Spain.  Her medium is bronze and her sculptures are abstract, yet figurative.  A noteworthy point about her work is that they are born out of an organic concept. By that, we mean to say that her sculptural shapes come from shapes found in nature. You might see a form in her sculpture that looks like a  tree branch or the spindly legs of her creature bugs seem to be inspired by twigs or sticks.  The helmets of her 'warriors' are made from almond shells.  Take a walk with Katherine and she'll find shapes in nature that wind up, ultimately, fashioned in one of her sculptures.  No multiples -- all one-offs.  If you look at her work, you'll see why: they're as unique as Katherine Taylor.
