Based in New York, Taisha Brehaut 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.
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.
