EXHIBITION: Life Without Colour - D. Taylor Art
Dates: 05 - 27/04/2017
"The world is viewed by so many through a reality skewing lens. Giant flat screen televisions in glorious full colour High Definition, ultra-realistic Video gaming on next generation consoles. Smartphones allowing images to be captured and shared with various filters and colour adjustments to artificially create a supposed perfect image to present to the world.
"The intention of this exhibition is to strip everything right back displaying bold and striking images without the use of colour or enhancement but instead relying upon the genuine beauty and impact of the subject captured. Reaching back to the classic movie stars of yesterday in black and white silver screen features, this exhibition uses simple light and dark contrasts to present images in a simplistic and impactful way.
"I was born in 1977 and attended Newent Community School. My parents successfully ran a local business in the town being Choices Fruit and Veg where I would often be found working on Saturdays or school holidays. I would always enjoy the friendly chat with all the customers that would come in not just to buy something but for some laughs as well.
"Having studied A level Art and Design I threw myself into music and have played in successful bands since this time, winning various Exposure Music Awards and being named best unsigned band by Kerrang Radio. Whilst continuing to play with local bands Nukchorris and Pretty Good Plan I have now once again picked up a paintbrush and am rekindling a love for painting. My two young boys will often sit at the table alongside me and paint their own versions of what I create which fills me with pride and enjoyment at the same time.
"My current work specialises in bold striking portrait images. I enjoy working with Black and White acrylic paint on canvas as a preferred medium allowing me to work in a loose flowing style. I have tried to capture not only expression but where possible energy in my paintings.
"Both musically and artistically I have had no formal training but instead rely on what comes from within naturally and how I feel on any given day that I paint plays a big factor on how the image takes shape.
"My aim for the future is to continue to grow and learn as an artist, spending more of my time producing work and experimenting with different styles, hopefully leading to becoming a known name for producing quality pieces in Gloucestershire and beyond."
