Description

Zoya Taylor – The Millennial, Strength to be Free

Estimated Value: $8,000

 

Born in Vancouver, B.C. Canada to Jamaican and Canadian parents, early childhood in Germany, raised in Kingston, Jamaica and a resident of Norway for more than twenty years. Zoya has a Masters degree in International Social Work from the University of British Columbia, Canada. After years of teaching at universities, developing community programs and outreach facilities in Jamaica, Canada, Latvia, Bosnia Hercegovina and Norway, Zoya began painting full-time in 2000. Since then she has participated in international exhibitions across Europe, the USA, Canada and Jamaica and has featured in publications such as Vanity Fair (2019),Caribbean News Service (2015), The Gleaner (Jamaica) (2012), and Arc Magazine (2012).

 

Zoya has developed a highly individualistic style of figuration and an idiosyncratic body of work that largely centres on a recurring cast of characters drawn partly from memories from her childhood but also very much a product of her current psyche.

 

“My art falls somewhat outside but I guess that is only fitting. I paint the cast of characters which fill the spaces in between. We all have a cast of characters that define our lives. My cast is the cast of the misfit. They are immigrants found between cultures, continents, languages and disciplines. I use the aesthetic of the outsider as a means to examine feelings which are both transcendental and hopeful.
There is a lot of noise in the silence.”
