Ross Taylor blends historical references, contemporary documentation and improvisation in his work. His work is process-driven and rich with interior and exterior character. Taylor’s process involves drawing imagery (line) onto the paper, invisibly at first, working over it later with coloured pencils. This transforms the intention and the accuracy of the original image while simultaneously revealing it as white lines within the overlaid drawing. The indented original line remains a form of blind scaffolding, around which the final composition must stand. The outcome both subsumes its initiation and reveals it on its surface.

Originally from Northumberland, England, Ross Taylor is based in the Macedon Ranges. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting/Art History) from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK). He has also studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Munich under Professor Nikolaus Lang. Taylor has been a recipient numerous grants and commissions from Arts Council England. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Germany, Japan, the USA and the UK, and has held artist residencies in England and at Art Space Tetra, Japan. His works have been acquired by Bendigo Art Gallery and are held in private collections in Australia and the UK.

Ross Taylor on The Design Files

Ross Taylor was interviewed by The Design Files ahead of the opening of his solo exhibition, A Foreign Affair.

The exhibition includes over a dozen colourful, medium- and large-scale drawings that explore holidays as a social phenomenon. Taylor explains, ‘I am fascinated at the fine line between luxury and debauchery, and the rules that present themselves in between.’

A Foreign Affair runs until 10 August 2019.

 

 


Ross Taylor in Vault Art Magazine

Ross Taylor's solo exhibition is previewed online on Vault. The exhibition includes dozens of Taylor's drawings, with his signature pencil marks and fragmented spatial construction, exploring the leisure industry through image play.

Kent Wilson writes: 

'How the utopian ideals of his source material – cruise ships, airports, holiday parks, food courts – hover on the edge of imminent dystopian actuality stirs a set of guidelines for his drawings that allows him to push the work to a zone of oscillation and glitch. “The potential in the drawings lie in the problems that present themselves,” he says, “as the composition comes into fruition and how they are resolved or deliberately unresolved. The most successful works for me push the boundaries of difficult colour and spatial relationships.” His drawings revel in the immediacy of effect and yet supply a depth of value that rewards contemplation beyond impact.'

Taylor's solo exhibition, A Foreign Affair, runs until 10 August 2019. To enquire about available works, please contact the gallery


Ross Taylor at La Trobe Art Institute

Ross Taylor's Norwegian Gem, 2018 (pictured) is included in The Grammar of Glitch, now showing at La Trobe Art Institute.

The exhibition explores how the language of systems is expressed in artwork. Whether through fragmentation of the visual field in landscape drawings or the distorted forms of the sculptural figure, this exhibition offers ways of understanding how glitches in systemic regularity can produce creative ends.

The exhibition opens on 24 July and runs until 2 September 2018. For futher details, please click here.
