We are delighted that Frank Taylor has agreed to be this year's featured artist for the Visual Arts Exhibition.
Many of Frank's paintings form a personal record of his travels to different parts of the world, and refer to the landscape and architecture he has seen, people he has met and incidents and interactions that happen along the way.
About Frank Taylor
Earlier paintings are highly realistic descriptions of landscape, buildings and people but in later works he tries to convey his impressions of places using memory and imagination in an increasingly abstract approach.
He experiments with many paint media and print techniques, with collage, photography, computer generated and modified images, with assemblage and sculpture.
Frank lived for several years in Cookham Village, but moved to Albury Heath in Surrey twenty years ago. He has exhibited at the Wooburn Festival Visual Arts exhibition during the past four decades!
After teaching at the High Wycombe and Amersham Art Colleges, he moved to Salisbury College, where he was Head of Fine Art and Graphics, before abandoning his career in art education in 1990 in order to travel and paint, and has made his living as an artist since then.
As well as having numerous solo shows of his paintings in galleries in London and throughout the UK, he has exhibited with most of the Royal Societies, has been represented in several major Art Fairs in this country and the USA. His paintings are in a number of public collections including that of the Houses of Parliament.
His work has reached a worldwide audience through prints published by the Art Group and IKEA. Other publishers of his prints include CCA, Castlebar Graphics and egalleryuk.
