Featured Artist

MALCOLM TAYLOR

We first discovered Malcolm Taylor at the Royal Academy summer exhibition six years ago.

He is a Northwest of England based artists who has exhibited widely throughout the British Isles.

The inspiration for his exceptional work comes from many sources but particularly from images gathered from his painting travels around the UK, especially his favourite place, St Ives in Cornwall.

This influence can be seen in our exhibition of his most recent works currently on display in the Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Many of his works are derived from an ongoing exploration of the various moods adopted by the landscape and seeing how these paintings can progress to arrive at a fully abstract image.

However he has never restricted himself to working in one medium and moves from acrylics to oils and both soft and oil pastels, he continually redraws, rearranges and obliterates areas in a desire to achieve a balance of colour and form.

His work is on display at the Theatre Royal Plymouth until Saturday 22nd June.

My expectation in framing is straightforward, though exacting. It needs to be impeccably crafted and not detract from the work with unnecessary embellishment, but support and enhance it with an elegant simplicity. I get this from 'the team' at The Framing Centre. The bonus is that it is all done with a ready acceptance of the quirky one-off; no hint of working to a well-trodden format here. This flexibilty is perfect for my needs and they have been my framers of choice for the past eight years.
