Having primarily based her practice in Auckland until recently, 2019 Frances Hodgkins Fellow Imogen Taylor plans to use her residency in Dunedin to develop a substantial body of work towards her first significant solo exhibition in the South Island. Since graduating from Elam in 2010 she has primarily been interested in balancing abstraction and representation, referencing Modernist art movements such as Cubism, Bauhaus, New Zealand regionalism and exploring the collision between modernism and queer theory. She is also intending to complete the third and fourth issues of her feminist zine project ‘Femisphere’ while in Dunedin in 2019.
