Debbie Taylor-Kerman is a New York-based artist who paints about the issues that most concern her. This week she joins Louise to discuss her life and her work. Debbie shares her formative experiences as a fish-out-of-water art student and explains how that time resonates in her work even today. Her early feelings of isolation and of never being “good enough” led her to a deep and abiding interest in issues of equality. She believes passionately that everyone is equal, no matter their race or gender or sexual orientation (or any other trait or quality that can be used to discriminate) and she makes art about this core value. Whether she is celebrating love of all kinds, or observing subway riders, or memorialising essential workers, Debbie is constantly exploring what it means to live in a diverse society. We know you’ll find this an enlightening, inspiring and thought-provoking conversation.
