Artist for April 2017: Kate Taylor
Kate Taylor is an abstract artist born in Cambridge, England, grew up in Oakville, Ontario and now works out of her studio in Toronto, Ontario. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western University where she was taught painting by the internationally-renowned artist, Paterson Ewen.
Kate is committed to capturing colour and energy in her mixed media acrylic paintings. Her work explores the unique forms and colours of nature and how they are an integral part of our lives. Working solely with a palette knife, she work in acrylics so that she can more easily manipulate the surface, building layers of paint, colours and patterns, overlapping bold and complementary colours. Working flat, she creates from all sides, ensuring that the piece works from all sides. Kate primarily works on birch panel, staining the background to reveal the woodgrain. She adds a resin coating to increase the depth and dimension of the work, making the reflected viewer a part of the final piece.
Kate is represented by Copley Society of Art (Boston), Rupert Young, art dealer, GalleryM (Thornhill), Petroff Gallery (Toronto), Arta Gallery (Toronto), PI Fine Arts (Toronto) and Galerie203 (Montreal). Her work is in corporate and private collections around the world.
Kate is a member of the SolidColour and ColourShift Abstract Art Collectives – a group of individuals committed to capturing and abstracting the world around them.
