"I was inspired by the fear of serpents that some people have," she explains. "I wanted to capture the way people can 'become' the very thing they fear, or the fact that there are aspects of that thing already present inside them." Taylor describes art as a way to make her thoughts and ideas tangible. Of sculpture, she says, "I am very much a hands-on learner. I'm interested in form and the occupation of space. Sculpture allows me to be inventive in a way that a pencil or paint does not." Taylor Day, a recipient of CSSSA's Herb Alpert Award in visual Arts, is a senior at dixon High School in California. She will be attending Humboldt State university in the fall as a studio art major. may/Jun 2014
