Michael Taylor | New Paintings

  • VENUE: Gorman Arts Centre
  • PRESENTER: NANCY SEVER | GALLERY
  • WHEN: 11am to 5pm
    29 November 2017 - 17 December 2017

The Nancy Sever Gallery celebrates its new location at Gorman Arts Centre with an exhibition of new paintings by Michael Taylor.

Michael Taylor is one of Australia’s most important contemporary painters and he ranks among the great interpreters of the Australian landscape.

He lives and works in the Monaro where he draws his inspiration from the natural world around him. He paints the landscapes and waterscapes of southeast New South Wales, capturing their rhythms and changing atmospheres. His paintings stand at the junction of landscape and abstraction, though they often appear to melt into total abstraction. As Sasha Grishin has observed, “Taylor is a rare example of an artist with a romantic sensibility who got better as he got older…..(his) paintings are a source of revelation and inspiration”.

His work is held in a number of important collections including those of the National Gallery of Australia, all the state and regional galleries, university galleries, and corporate and private collections.

 

Michael Taylor | New Paintings is on display from 29 November to 17 December at the NANCY SEVER GALLERY, Gorman Arts Centre, Braddon.

Gallery hours: 11am – 5pm Wednesday to Sunday. For further information please contact Nancy Sever on 0416 249 102 or nancysevergallery.com.au
