My art conveys the deeper layers of our reality, our connectivity to one another, and our ability to transcend our collective hardship and suffering by utilizing our technology for our benefit on a soul level, versus just using it for superficial convenience. I #LivetoTell through art, that we have the means to connect to each other in deeper ways in order to better understand the humanity of one another and alleviate feelings of loneliness, alienation, despair, and isolation. We can co-evolve with our technology to create access to ourselves and each other in such a way that the harm of our current paradigm can be shifted towards empathy and psychological fulfillment by accessing our underlying connections to the whole of our species and reality.

About the Artist

Tai was born and raised in the Ohio River valley of Appalachia. As a young adult she moved to Washington State and has been a Pacific Northwest resident ever since. At an early age, she found that art offered her a way to communicate where words failed to encompass all that she wished to express. It imbued her with purpose. She completed her first master copy at the age of 9 –the isolated image of God’s hand touching Adam’s in Michelangelo’s masterpiece “The Creation of Adam”. At the age of thirteen, her father passed away by suicide. This traumatic loss has echoed throughout her life and has inspired her to seek understanding of how we may be better able to treat and heal mental anguish through more creative means of utilizing our technology. Incorporating classical and imaginative realism techniques with themes of transhumanism and the collective unconscious, her work illustrates the underlying connections between us and the divine, and how we may access these deeper layers of reality through our coevolution with technology. She is currently enrolled in a classical drawing and painting intensive under the Instruction of Juliette Aristides.
