Taylor Kibby lives and works in Los Angeles, California. She was educated at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Massachusetts before graduating with an MFA in Applied Craft and Design from Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft. Kibby is known for her intricate, flowing stoneware sculptures, which are moulded in interlocking links of a remarkable lightness and delicacy, making them resemble woven chains. As seen in the work of Ruth Asawa or Eva Hesse, Kibby’s intricate, flowing abstract sculptures challenge traditional notions of sculpture and solidity, requiring intensive discipline and precision to create. Kibby’s interest in chain links is rooted in their potential to reflect the way objects and people occupy space in the world as well as notions of memory, identity and narrative.

Kibby has been featured in group exhibitions at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield ,CA (2022) Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Snowmass, CO (2021), Craig Krull Gallery, Los Angeles (2021), Egg Collective, NYC (2021, 2022), Maho Kubota, Tokyo (2021), NonFinito Gallery, New York (2019); A-B Projects, Los Angeles (2019); Emma Scully Gallery, Los Angeles (2018). Her work is held in various significant private collections internationally and in the public collection of the Santa Monica Proper Hotel, Los Angeles.
