Colin Taylor: Riverscapes
ARTSPACE, | 18/01/2014 : 02/03/2014
As well as being a painter, Colin has nearly 30 experience of climbing and working in mountains. He was born in the East Midlands and studied art and drama at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham in the mid-eighties.
In 2008/09 Colin produced ‘A short walk in the big landscape’, a series of nine solo exhibitions that toured England funded by the English Arts Council.
In 2010, he was invited to undertake a year-long residency at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral which led to an exhibition of 30+ drawings and which later transferred to Cologne, Germany. In 2012 he had a solo exhibition in Chelsea, New York.
He is currently nearing the end of a 3-year project with a Manchester-based property developer, (Bruntwood plc), working on a series of ‘cityscapes’, looking across the city skyline from the top of a number of their properties and for which a large exhibition is planned next summer. Also in 2014 he will be exhibiting in Washington DC with Susan Calloway Fine Art and has been invited to undertake a series of drawings for the National Cycling Stadium in Manchester.
