JESSICA TAYLOR is a photographer and sculptor whose integrated practice calls into question the lethal gaps in U.S. gun legislation. Taylor's work touches on the quiet destruction of her own family as the result of an accidental shooting between brothers, one of whom was her father. Her work also explores the trauma that physical objects can hold, and how the pain of one’s lived experiences can become long-lasting and inter-generational.
