Malcolm Taylor

Born 1948
Lives NW England
Principally a painter of landscapes
Member The Manchester Academy of Fine Arts

 

"My concern is not with reproducing a likeness but in capturing the characteristics of a subject."

 

Malcolm Taylor is a painter of landscapes, still life and increasingly an abstract painter. Over the last year he has also been engaged in creating a new body of work a solo exhibition at Water Street Gallery in October 2015. (Images to come). His inspiration comes from many sources but particularly from sketchbooks and images gathered from walking his dog in and around Calderdale.

‘I have tried to produce paintings, which show a variety of locations around the upper Calder valley at different times of year. However, although I have a fixed image in mind when I start, this always develops further in the painting process’.

Hopefully my work will be of interest to everyone who likes landscape painting but will be especially interesting to those who know the area well.’

 

Biography
 
My inspiration is drawn from many sources but particularly from my sketchbooks and images gathered from my travels around the UK, especially to St. Ives in Cornwall. Many of my paintings are derived from an ongoing exploration of the landscape but, with my purely abstract paintings, I do not have a fixed image in mind when I start, preferring to let the imagery develop and evolve through the process of painting.
 
I have never restricted myself to working in one particular medium and continually find myself switching between acrylics, traditional oils and both soft and oil pastels depending on what I am trying to achieve.
 
Brushes, sticks, fingers and thumbs are used to scrape, score and scratch marks onto the surface. I continually redraw, rearrange and obliterate passages in a desire to achieve a balance of colour and form. The end result is what is important and I may use collage, mixed media, dripping, scraping, drawing with sticks – anything to achieve a spontaneous and lively painting that is harmonious in composition, tone and colour.
