RETURN TO THE WILD: A PREVIEW OF JO TAYLOR'S FORTHCOMING SOLO EXHIBITION

Published: 26 October 2017


Jo Taylor has dedicated her entire artistic career to recording, emulating, and glorifying the majesty of the horse. The artist's upbringing provided a solid background in all things equestrian, which carried over into her passion for art later in life. In her newest solo exhibition with Thompson's Gallery, Jo Taylor presents a series of works centered around the wild horses of Ireland's coasts. Titled 'Upon the Wind and Waves', the exhibition opens in the London gallery on 8th November and concludes on the 25th.

'Upon the Wind and Waves' depicts Taylor's wild horses racing, swimming, wading, and jumping across the sands of time. Jubilant and free, these noble creatures convey a kinetic energy from the surface through Taylor's dynamic markmaking and colour application.
