Nancy Sever Gallery: Michael Taylor New Paintings

26 October 2016

Michael Taylor is currently exhibiting at Nancy Sever Gallery with a new collection of works that follows on from the recent critically acclaimed survey of his work at Canberra Museum and Gallery.

Taylor lives and works now in the Monaro and this collection is a contemporary view of that magnificent landscape that inspires him to produce landscapes and waterscapes that show his abstract view and the beguiling landscapes that his painter’s eye makes recognisable visually and texturally.

He’s a quiet man with prolific output and this collection is part of a long and important journey in his career that defines him as one of Australia’s most important contemporary painters.

Opened by Deb Clark, Senior Curator of Visual Arts at the Canberra Museum and Gallery, who curated the CMAG exhibition, with all her asides and insider information of Taylor adding to the respect she has for his work. She knows them well and the two talking together is an insight into what Taylor endeavours to achieve in his work.

Taylor’s family were there, his granddaughter loving the moment in the spotlight, and a former neighbour from Taylor’s younger days in Sydney........catching up and reliving those days with obvious pleasure.

The exhibition continues at Nancy Sever Galler, Kennedy Street Kingston, until 20 November
