Showing all 16 results

Malcolm Taylor is principally a painter of landscapes and still life. However for the past few years he has worked in an increasingly abstract format. Much of this shift from representational painting to a more abstract approach has been inspired by his many visits to St Ives. Where the rich tradition of abstract art has held a special interest for him.

In 2019, Malcolm was elected as a member of The Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). And in 2019, he was appointed President of Manchester Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA) and the Pastel Society (PS).

ABSTRACT

He uses many sketchbook studies and drawings as a starting point for my work from which a fully abstract painting develops. At the outset he often don’t have a fixed form in mind. Preferring to let the imagery evolve through the process of painting.

Malcom’s concern is not with reproducing a likeness but in capturing the characteristics of a subject. Each painting undergoes constant change until the tensions of the composition are right. Energy and a sense of freedom is what he strives for, allowing the spontaneity of the marks to be interesting in their own right.
