Transcendent – Eliza Taylor
Eliza Taylor – they/she
My work is a tool to explore human existence and our interactions with nature. I begin the artistic process by sourcing images from the internet and my life. I then compile these images on top of one another to express the past present and future of a moment in nature. Often these moments are wildfires. Then I combine important imagery from my life, such as my girlfriend or a childhood game. I aim for the viewer to use my work as a place to process the highs and lows of human interactions with nature. Along with the viewer, I hope to find peace and clarity through the creation of this work.
