Susan Aaron-Taylor
Susan Aaron-Taylor is a builder and a storyteller whose hands and spirit work collectively to create works of art rooted in the traditions of alchemy and creative fantasy. A sculptor, teacher, and student of Jungian psychology, Aaron-Taylor mines the realm of dreams, archetypes, and the collective unconscious to invent mythologies entwined in personal history, mysticism, and ritual. As objects, her sculptures are physical manifestations of alchemy, the medieval melding of chemistry, philosophy, and secret lore, in which matter is converted from one element into another. Wool, stone, fossil, wood, paper, bone, metal, mineral, shell, bead, and plant material exist first in nature, then as art. They are the connective tissue, the muscle supporting the essential poetry of the work. As stories, Aaron-Taylor"s work transcends language to construct dream-like narratives that explore ancient cultures, archetypes, the psyche, shamanism, and, ultimately, the Self. Aaron-Taylor"s role as an artist and storyteller, her marriage of material and myth-making, merge in a holistic tableau of meaning, within which we find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Brooklyn-born and Detroit-based, Aaron-Taylor studied art at Cranbrook Art Academy and Wayne State University. As an educator, she has been a Professor on the faculty of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit since 1973, serving as Chair of the Crafts Department from 1980 to 1990, Section Chair of Fibers from 1973 to 2013 and currently as Professor emerita. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States, and is included in numerous collections, including Cranbrook Art Museum, Kmart Corporation, and Westin Hotels. © 2017 Susan Aaron-Taylor, all rights reserved.

Susan Aaron-Taylor, M.F.A.Susan Aaron-Taylor has been an artist for more than 30 years.More than a decade ago, she became enraptured with the mystical, symbol-laden illustrations of the medieval alchemists.She spent days on the beaches of Lake Huron pouring through alchemical texts and scrutinizing the mysterious drawings.Alchemy seemed to her to be a labyrinth of information that defied linear logic.She notes psychologist Carl Jung's theory that the entire alchemical procedure is paralleled to the psychological process of individuation-that which it is in one to become. The marriage of psychology and alchemy is the source of inspiration for her most recent series of sculptures, which concretize and illuminate this esoteric philosophy of alchemy.Aaron-Taylor describes her mixed-media sculptures, which are influenced by dream imagery, shamanism, ritual, alchemy, the tarot, and Jungian psychology, as "autobiographical sculptures, which construct transformational paths between life's polarities." She has been working in the arts for three decades, exhibits her work nationally and internationally, and is a professor at the Center for Creative Studies, College of Art and Design in Detroit, Michigan.She not only teaches students how to sculpt, but encourages them to make self-portraits that result from inner work.She emphasizes that artists must first bring pieces of themselves into their work, and then to the world.
