Saba Blyden-Taylor is an interdisciplinary artist from Toronto, Canada. Most of their work is about dissociation and the detachment of body and mind, especially through teenage years when we come to learn who we are as individuals and how we show up for others in our relationships. Their work is a journey of self exploration and process, diving deep into what makes us us and how we function. As they learn who they are, they use their work as a way to take time to reflect on the relationship their body and spirit/mind have, and is learning how to bring both together in order to fully understand how they view the world.
Currently they are working on several process based pen pieces and are using this time of isolation for introspection and meditation with their work. They have exhibited with the Magenta Foundation at Stephen Bulger Gallery (2019), had a solo show this past winter (2020), is apart of a curating group called the Curatorial Cuties that had their first show in the fall (2019) in partnership with Kontort Productions and the Magenta Foundation, and has been apart of several local exhibitions and sales/markets since. This coming fall of 2020 they are attending the Yukon School of Visual Arts to start their studies post secondary school.
