Deeply Impressed May 16, 2008

I have been deeply impressed by the art of Sam-Tayler Wood, which I had the pleasure to see in London lately.

Sam-Tayler Woods SelfportraitShe is a very interesting contemporary young British artist. I have seen her “Self-portrait with hare” for the first time in a shocking experience in the British National Portrait Gallery. The photo is about 2m high and portraits the artist. Shortly before the picture was taken she suffered from cancer and just recently got her hair back.
The title and setting resembles this with genius sarcasm. The hare is dead but still as a symbol of fertility in her hands. And hare also sounds a lot like hair which she just now can show again.

All other works of Sam-Tayler are also quite impressive. I just ran to the next rooms to see more of her wonderful yet sometimes disturbing photos.
