It's finally here! Jo Taylor's much anticipated solo exhibition, 'Upon the Wind and Waves' is now open in our London gallery.
This exhibition is a culmination of a lifelong passion for horses, but also a study of the animal in a new setting; the wild, untouched landscape of the Atlantic coast of Connemara, Ireland. The grounding of Taylor's work lies in the technical accuracy in which she depicts her subjects having completed an artists resdency at the University of Liverpool's department of veterinary science, but the true joy in this new collection is the dynamism, power, expression that is presented to us in Taylor's unique and engaging style.
Sometimes painted and drawn to an almost life-size scale, the pieces in this exhibition meet you with genuine presence and weight, drawing you in for a closer inspection at which the detail can really be seen; elements of collage, layers of mark making and various mediums combine to make compelling finshed works. The exhibition also features ink sketches, smaller studies and a graceful triptych (works sold seperately) bearing the exhibition's name, 'Upon the Wind and Waves' which really captures the essense of the artist's emotional connection to her subjects in the wild.
We hope you can visit us at 3 Seymour Place to enjoy this stunning collection of works by one of the UK's leading contemporary animal painters.
