Meet the Volunteers: Megan Taylor

Introducing this weeks ‘meet the volunteer’, Megan Taylor!  Megan has been volunteering with us on Saturdays evenings with our new group Art Matters, for young people aged 21 - 26 years.  She has been supporting our artists in the studio, assisting them in the development of their own personal art projects.  Megan’s contribution to this new group has been invaluable, here is a little more about her…

‘I graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2012 with a BA(hons) in Communication Design, specialising in illustration. Since graduating, I have been involved in various roles such as lecturing and set/spatial design projects.

Within my eclectic practice, my work aims to explore the language of drawing. I draw inspiration from a variety of written sources as I find myself fascinated by imagery embedded in loaded words which allow me to respond and construct drawings between transitional states of mind and disciplines.

My work often explores the relationship between spectator and the observation of drawing as mental spaces, through abstract sculptural performance drawing. My working process aims to challenge the perception of the viewer and question the meaning of space, through exploration of large scale experimental drawing and juxtapositions in site specific spaces.

In my current work I aim to address these questions through an understanding of the self and changing states of mind in the body of drawing.

In terms of material and media, I have worked largely in two- dimensional mediums: primarily painting, collage and drawing. More recently I have experimented with sculptural processes and installation work, so to evolve my painting and drawing practices into a more contemporary and experimental three dimensional process.'

 

Volunteering at Project Ability has been very inspiring as it has taught me so much about other individual creative processes and approaches to image making. I have enjoyed observing the interdisciplinary fashion of mixed media techniques used to explore and convey different ideas.’
