"Like found objects or the marks and stains of human existence, Smith's work has a seemingly accidental beauty." – Christopher Harrity, The Advocate Magazine

"I was immediately drawn to Smith's ability to effortlessly invoke complex feelings about the human body. By Beautifully blending figure painting, abstraction, design, and mechanical illustration, her artworks remind the viewer of their relationship, both physically and psychologically, to their own bodies and the human form. The body seems intimate, yet foreign, organic yet mechanical, and simple yet beyond understanding“ – Garry Milius, Associate Curator of Art, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction

"Taylor Smith is one of the most committed, significantly talented artists I've had the pleasure of working with." – Paul Klein, writer for The Huffington Post, creator of Klein ArtistWorks & SupporTED mentor of TED Fellows

“The artworks feel both deeply personal and cold at the same time. This dichotomy can be found throughout all of Smith’s work as she merges two ways of observing the world: the aesthetic of art with the factual understanding of science.” – The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University
