Mark Taylor

Mark Taylor specialises in representational paintings which cover a diverse subject matter.

“I completed my degree in 2023 and am now expanding my practice beyond the subject area of my degree exhibition ‘Unhomely interiors’. This concentrated on documenting abandoned spaces, particularly building interiors, and the effect that the passing of time has had on these built environments and their contents."

He works from found and self-sourced photographs using these as inspiration. Using water soluble oils and/or acrylic paint I explore how light illuminates the subject matter and often how the effect of halation, the spreading of light beyond its proper boundaries to form a fog around the edges of a bright image, creates tonal interest and emphasises shadows.

Mark's aim is to compel the viewer to take a closer look at their surroundings and the environment that they inhabit.
