Venus, 2020

Taylor Yingshi

Taylor Yingshi is an emerging artist in Seattle whose work reflects the unique experiences she has gained in adolescence. Yingshi hopes to use her art as a vessel to express the fear and uncertainty of growing up as part of an interconnected, socially conscious generation. Yingshi runs an art collective called Student Art Spaces when she is not in the studio.

“This piece responds to the Venus de Milo, carved around 100 BC. Beauty standards have not changed much since then.”
