acrylic on canvas

Neil Taylor’s naturalistic depiction of the Australian bush explores the raw characteristics of the landscape. Taylor draws from the traditions of Romanticism and the Australian landscapes of Russell Drysdale, William Robinson and Arthur Streeton to build a layered historical narrative. Through the use of realistic tones and rendered light, Taylor’s paintings suggest a more transient moment. Here the immediacy of the landscape alludes to something more powerful and its device as a metaphor for mans interaction with nature.
