Exhibition Of Art By Colin Taylor At The Anglican Cathedral

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral
7 March – 26 April 2011

This collection is the first time the Cathedral has hosted an exhibition focused on the building itself and by a single artist. This intuitive work presents the artist, Colin Taylor’s engagement with both the spatial and physical impact of the Cathedral.

The drawings are not intended to be representative of the building or any particular part of it, but are about his experience and contact with the Cathedral built up over time and reinterpreted in this body of work.

Each drawing begins with a single reference point arbitrarily positioned on the
paper from where it is developed outward. The direct and rapid approach
transfers the experience and emotion with immediate effect. Layers of charcoal,
chalk, graphite or iron powder are applied, erased and re-applied and the episodic
process continues, sometime over several months until it is done. Through this
evolution, the history of each drawing is laid bare and the decisions taken during
its production, self evident and autobiographical.

Colin Taylor divides his time between his twin passions of mountaineering and
painting with each activity influencing the other. Currently Manchester based, he
has travelled widely throughout Europe, South America and Asia. He has exhibited throughout the UK and internationally.
