Nicolette Taylor is a 23-year-old glass and sculpture creator from Northeast Pennsylvania. She finds comfort in her passion to create and invoke emotions by exploring relationships between materials when married together.
My entire life has been a chase of trying to suppress and bottle up my emotions. Most of these things have been unhealthy until I found glass and sculpture as a safe haven. Not just as an artist but as humans we all face the trials of life. In my sculptures, I am trying to display that as people we are all held in boxes that we need to push through. The metal cages show the constraints and the glass representing ourselves as beings having to face uncomfortable things to grow and push through rough boundaries. My main goal is to represent resiliency that presents itself through loss.
We are the 2022 graduating seniors from Keystone College’s Visual Arts program. Join us as we pay tribute not only to the profession as a whole but to the individual artists themselves. Their dedication and hard work have brought them to this launching point in their careers as professional artists.
The students, all members of the 2022 graduating class, have spent years honing their skills in preparation for their professional debut. The show will consist of three-dimensional works that include glass, ceramics, and sculpting.
