more on Michael Taylor from the supplied info>>>

The Nancy Sever Gallery has now relocated to new premises in the Gorman Arts Centre and launches the new space with an exhibition of paintings by Michael Taylor.

Taylor is one of Australia’s most important contemporary painters and he ranks amongst the great interpreters of the Australian landscape. He lives and works in the Monaro where he draws his inspiration from the natural world around him. He paints the landscapes and waterscapes of southeast New South Wales, capturing their rhythms and changing atmospheres.

His paintings stand at the junction of landscape and abstraction, though they often appear to melt into total abstraction. As Sasha Grishin has observed, “Taylor is a rare example of an artist with a romantic sensibility who got better as he got older … [his] paintings are a source of revelation and inspiration”.

The exhibition was opened by Deborah Clark, senior curator, visual arts, Canberra Museum and Gallery, who curated a major 50-year retrospective exhibition of Taylor’s work at CMAG last year.
