Taylor Chan Daley
A Solo Exhibition
"Working with clay gives me the ability to have a voice through clays abilities, clay slumps, cracks, breaks, warps, and expands just as we all metaphorically do. I use clay’s natural characteristics to emphasize the fluidity and surface in my work. The integration between surface, form, and function is where I test the limits. My work consists of concepts that test the boundaries of maximalism. Walking the line of what is too much and not enough. What and where is the start point of excess? What is the limit? I often make things that test the boundaries of time- in the fast paced world of today I am interested in breaking the boundaries between function and art."
