‘I have found that sensorial phenomena are created through the reduction of visual information.  This discovery leads me to question the significance of what cannot be seen, yet remains present.’

Caleb Taylor is a Kansas City-based artist whose practice freely navigates the disciplines of painting, collage, photography, and sculpture. He is the recipient of the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant and Charlotte Street Foundation Fellowship, and has completed residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Joan Mitchell Center, and Ucross Foundation.  His paintings and drawings are published in New American Painting and have been exhibited at venues including the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Grand Arts (KC), Weatherspoon Art Museum (NC), and Tiger Strikes Asteroid (NY). Taylor’s work is included in the public collections of the Nerman MoCA, KU Medical Center, and Polsinelli Law Firm (KC). He received his MFA in painting from Montana State University-Bozeman (2008) and his BFA from Northwest Missouri State University (2004.)  He is represented by HAW Contemporary in Kansas City and has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in their two locations.  

Taylor is a founding member of PLUG Projects, a curatorial collaboration with the shared goal of engaging artists and the public at large by exhibiting challenging new work, initiating critical dialogue, and expanding connections of voices in Kansas City as part of a wider, national network of creative practitioners.  During this tenure with PLUG (2011-2016), he collaborated to curate over 35 exhibitions and more than 100 public programs ranging from rap battles, interpretive sound performances, installations taking over vacated shopping malls, artist book fairs, panel discussions and collaborative events joining confectionery and dance.  PLUG is a recipient of a 2011 Rocket Grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation, Spencer Museum of Art, and Charlotte Street Foundation.
