Lot Essay

Stephanie Taylor is a sculptor, sound artist, painter and writer working in Los Angeles. Her cross-disciplinary approach enables her to create multifaceted exhibitions where sound and sculpture merge to form engrossing narrative journeys. Scattered throughout her exhibitions like displaced fictional characters, Taylor’s sculptures of animals become continuations of her musical compositions, blurring the boundary between where visual work ends and sound design begins. In her music, sequential connections are made based on rhyming vowel sounds. This concept is continued with the carefully selected titles of sculptures, such as Hopper (and Poppers) (2007). Making an appearance at the 2016 exhibition The Stephanie Taylor Kong Boos in Hollywood, Hopper (and Poppers)is a copper-plated bronze cast of a rabbit, playfully riffing on the rhyming interplay between the title of the work and its material (‘hopper’/’copper’), and thereby reinforcing Taylor’s detection of correspondences and sequences in sound.
