Memory Of An Icon

Estimate: £700 - 1,100

Inscribed 'Taylor' (lower right)
Oil on canvas
40 x 50 cm.
Painted in 2019

John Taylor strives for simplicity, clarity and a harmonious colour palette in his work which draws inspiration from the St. Ives School. 

The geometric language specific to John's work is informed by his collage work where carefully chosen cut outs are arrange within the picture frame. Memory Of An Icon is painted using impasto oil to draw attention to the painterly nature of these works in comparison to the flatness of collage. 


Theatre and Film Design, Central St Martin's College.
