Gwen Taylor, born in 1989 in Kalamazoo, MI, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with emphasis in photography and intermedia at Western Michigan University in May 2015. Gwen is an artist who mainly works with fine art and commercial photography. Influenced by multiple immediate family illnesses Gwen is currently exploring the mind, specifically, the division between memory and experience. This personal follow up allows her to further explore retrieval cues, the retention process and forgetting over time. Her collected, altered and own photos are being characterized as aesthetically resilient. Gwen hopes her work will enhance the viewers understanding of the importance memory has in our history, cultural and personal lives. Using in camera techniques, Gwen revisits past experiences and recreates the alterations, disorientation and challenges with recollection over time.
