JESSICA TAYLOR is an artist utilizing presentation methods that integrate photography and sculpture to call into question lethal gaps in United States gun safety legislation. Her work touches on the quiet destruction of family as the result of an accidental shooting between brothers, one of whom was her father. At the same time, she is also exploring the emotional trauma passed down through generations.
