BYU professor of art Sunny Belliston Taylor likes shapes. For the past decade she has built an increasingly sophisticated body of work that explores the “objecthood” of painting. Her abstracted paintings make overt references to their own structure, to the boundaries of the panel’s dimensions, the geometric building blocks of her compositions. Boundaries, her exhibition at the BYU Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium Gallery in Provo, features a number of her current explorations. In this video piece, filmmaker Chris Cutri visits Taylor in her Provo home to discuss life, art and the nature of form.
