Maggie Taylor – New Work & Limited Edition Monograph Updates


photo-eye Gallery Maggie Taylor:
New Work & Limited Edition Monograph Updates
photo-eye Gallery is very excited to share twelve new works from represented artist Maggie Taylor. Also, Taylor's limited edition books are increasing in price on October 1st; copies can still be ordered at current prices.

A world of her own, Archival Pigment Print, 8x8" Image, Edition of 15, $1500

photo-eye Gallery is very excited to share twelve new works from represented artist Maggie Taylor. After completing her prodigious series of illustrations for Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-glass, a project spanning more than three years, Taylor continues to create whimsical surrealistic photomontages using her signature technique – a process she's pioneered for more than twenty years. The inspiration for the work is personal, societal, and intuitive.

The work is available in limited editions today, starting at $1500 for an 8x8" print, and we reached out to Talyor for some additional insight into the making of these new images.


Maggie Taylor, The girls, Archival Pigment Print, 8x8" Image, Edition of 15, $1500
"For the last three years, I primarily focused my creative energy on my series of Through the Looking-glass images: Alice, the Tweedles, Walruses, Carpenters and all. Even before that, I had been collecting daguerreotypes and other antique photographs of girls who looked like potential Alices for years to prepare for the series. When the book went to press late last year I breathed a sigh of relief and started to open other images to work on. But, one day last spring I opened the Alice folder on my Mac to see what other girls I might have that had not been included in the book project. It turned out I used all that I had, no extras. So for some reason, I felt excited about taking a few of my favorite girls and putting them in a new image. As I started to piece the image The girls together, first I had 5, then 6, then 7…and before I knew it I wanted all 22 girls from the book in there.  
The working title of the image, as I rearranged the figures for weeks, was Girl Power. I think it said something to me about women in 2018, even though these girls are looking at us from the mid-19th century. They project a kind of strength and resilience, and a dreamlike attitude.  
Meanwhile, I have been working on a few still life images, and other things that start off as still lives but morph into something else. An egg on a table wound up being a little egg character in a landscape. A pear on a table takes on a new role as a beetle’s cottage. Three women are covered with zodiac tattoos; a girl holds up the world. I have no idea what I am working on next, but I take one image at a time and see where it leads me. Many, I know, have ties to my own life stories and even current events."
