Susan

Taylor Glasgow

For returning artist Susan Taylor Glasgow, the feminine role is a conflicted one, full of prescriptions and praise for domestic talents, and difficult to embrace without some sense of subversion. In her own, innovative manner, she has found a way to do both–embrace and subvert–as she sews an unyielding medium, bakes inedible creations, and stitches glass clothing that no one can functionally wear. She says, “For years I believed my work was about myself. But ultimately my work is about my mother. With the sewing and cooking skills she passed on, I am able to indulge my own notions of domestic role-playing. My work embraces [those] feminine ideals, but in a contrary material, offering conflicting messages of comfort and expectation.”
