Abstract Paintings and Designs
I am a Visual Artist based in The Western Lake District. Working with Acrylics and Digital Mediums, I produce images inspired by the colours and scenes that surround me.
My work includes:-
Photography, Digital Art, Acrylic Painting, Prints and Greeting Cards.
All work on all pages of this Website are © Iain Taylor 2020.
I come from a musical background having been a drummer and sometimes DJ both professionally and semi-professionally for over forty years. Colours have always been important in my life and a source of magnetism to my soul. At the time of writing this, I still don’t know how or why this attraction came about. They say Magpies are attracted to shiny objects, I have the same addiction with colour!
I like many different types of Art, but influences would have to be Jackson Pollock, Roger Dean, William Turner, HR Giger, William Neal and Gerhard Richter. Abstract expressionism is a way for me to communicate with design, movement and inspiration. The need to see beyond the painting is paramount, and my images or designs are interpreted in many different ways dependant on the observer.
I produce vibrant Acrylic Abstract Paintings which focus on merging and movement of colours. All artwork is Contemporary and Abstracts can be produced to a bespoke colour scheme to suit individual needs. If you have any questions please use the contact details.
I specialise in producing smaller artworks that are both affordable and space saving. They are vibrant works with a huge impact but only 29.7cm x 21cm (A4) ready to frame. Or I can supply them mounted up to 14″ x 11″. All these works are original pieces and I do not produce any prints. This makes the work unique.
All the paintings are created based on feelings and emotions at the time. The final outcome is based on my composition at the point where I feel the painting is balanced and complete. I work quickly usually whilst the paint is fluid. Development of my work is seeing a different approach to my mark making, and using multiple layering.
Canvas work ‘Solstice’. Original Acrylic Painting. This piece is 48cm x 48cm on canvas. I like to rely on the movement of the paint to create the colour merges. By applying the paint thickly this makes for a highly textured painting. Usually I work quickly whilst the paint is wet.
The Digital side of my Artwork includes both Abstractexpressionism and Photographic manipulation using various software. All work can be printed to different sizes on a wide range of mediums.
My Greeting cards are produced at 7″ x 5″ and are based on Photographic and Digital images. Most of the Photographic work is based on inspiration that surrounds me in The Western Lake District. But not exclusively!
