Josephine Taylor makes large scale, narrative drawings using diluted permanent ink washes on sheets of unframed, white paper. Her work examines the emotional and psychological residue of childhood and adolescence. Although her subject matter is intensely personal and rendered with a tender fragility, the monumental format defies any presupposition of intimacy. Taylor is a  recipient of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art SECA Award and has been included in the California Biennial at the Orange Country Museum of Art.  Her work has been exhibited throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and is in the permanent collections of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and Museum of Modern Art, New York. She lives and works in San Francisco.
