Based in New York, Taisha is included in the collections of Sol LeWitt, the Federal Reserve Bank and in numerous private collections internationally. She hails from New Zealand, was born in Australia to New Zealand parents and emigrated to America in 1998 to take up a position at the Yale School of Art.
She has worked consistently and her practice has blossomed from Conceptual Sculpture, found in the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Teststrip Gallery and Artspace, Auckland, New Zealand, to her intimate and sensitive line drawings and spare photographs that record her daily surrounds and reveal her empathy with those findings. Her paintings have developed from her enigmatic "Landmarks," series, to the white on white "Ziggurats," to "Space Lights," a cross between a Japanese light and a "UFO," exhibited in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Philippe de Boucaud of Paris, selected "Vignettes," her hand-made moving image of postcard-like vistas, for "The Fourth Free International Forum," in Bolognanno, Italy, 2010, the place where Joseph Beuys, planted his trees - inclusion in an exhibition at St. Cyr Ecole, France, consisting of three recent paintings and a drawing of an egg on a plate, followed.
Taisha's works were featured at Avery Fisher Hall's, Cork Gallery, the Gallery at Lincoln Center, The Metropolitan Opera, Lower Level, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Saatchi & Saatchi, New York, The Stamford Museum and Nature Center, the Eli Whitney Museum, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, The Yale Art and Architecture Gallery, Salomon Arts Gallery, New York, the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, Connecticut and Yellow Fish Art Gallery, Montreal, Quebec.
