Ross Taylor’s practice considers the evocations and resonances of interior and exterior spaces through carefully composed images. Motifs of the ancient and the everyday are woven and spliced into layered and colour drenched works from which to decipher a personal narrative and probe the very nature of recollection and memorialising.

Taylor’s use of bold colour and disjointed perspective aims to visualise the way disparate images coalesce in our minds to form memories. Imagery taken from sketches and photographs are stitched together as a ‘fragmented’ narrative which charts a continuum of experience and a celebration of place.

Ross Taylor is based in the Macedon Ranges, Central Victoria. In 2003–04 he received a mentorship at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Munich, Germany. In 2005 he completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK). Since 2005, Taylor has regularly exhibited in public and commercial galleries in Australia, UK, Germany, Japan and the USA. His most recent solo and group shows were held at Bendigo Art Gallery and La Trobe University, Australia. His works are held in public and private collections in Australia and the UK. He has been a finalist in art awards including the John Leslie, Paul Guest and Sunshine Coast prize and has received travel grants, commissions and residency funding from the Arts Council. He has held artist residencies at Globe Gallery, England and Art Space Tetra, Japan. His work has been represented in numerous publications such as The Age, Art Collector, Vault magazine and ArtsHub.

Ross Taylor interviewed on Contemporary Art Collectors

Ross Taylor was recently interviewed on Contemporary Art Collectors

About his work, Taylor says: 'I reference a mixed bag of imagery, from childhood holiday spots, domestic scenes and the natural world, playfully interrogating notions of my own personal history and memory. From one work to the next, the composition is morphing, shifting, self-referencing and abstracting, all according to the process of remembering. I suppose my aim for the viewer is to draw upon the complexity of the image as a critical expression of recalling an experience.'

Taylors next solo exhibition will open at the gallery in June 2021. To request a preview, please contact the gallery.

Ross Taylor on ArtsHub

After witnessing the aftermath of bushfires in central Victoria, Ross Taylor created a visual diary journalling the landscape's recovery, on display in Field Notes at Bendigo Art Gallery.

In a feature on art as recovery during times of devastation and destruction on ArtsHub, Taylor explains his work as 'a means of describing the cycle of nature and the tensions that lie between life and death'. ⁠

Bendigo Art Gallery is temporarily closed until further notice. In the meantime, the exhibition can be viewed online.

Ross Taylor at Bendigo Art Gallery

Ross Taylor's solo exhibition, Field Notes, will open at Bendigo Art Gallery in March 2020.

Taylor's ambitious new body of work explores the landscape, history, people and architecture of Central Victoria. Through a dedication to the medium of drawing and the interrogation of colour and spatial relationships, Taylor’s works read like an expanded notebook; an assemblage of visual ‘field notes’ in which a new – and often playful – chronicle of Central Victoria's cultural landscape is offered.⁠

For further details or to enquire about available works, please contact the gallery.

Ross Taylor on The Design Files

Ross Taylor was interviewed by The Design Files ahead of the opening of his solo exhibition, A Foreign Affair.

The exhibition includes over a dozen colourful, medium- and large-scale drawings that explore holidays as a social phenomenon. Taylor explains, ‘I am fascinated at the fine line between luxury and debauchery, and the rules that present themselves in between.’

A Foreign Affair is on display until 10 August 2019.


Ross Taylor in Vault Art Magazine

Ross Taylor's solo exhibition is previewed online on Vault. The exhibition includes dozens of Taylor's drawings, with his signature pencil marks and fragmented spatial construction, exploring the leisure industry through image play.

Kent Wilson writes: 

'How the utopian ideals of his source material – cruise ships, airports, holiday parks, food courts – hover on the edge of imminent dystopian actuality stirs a set of guidelines for his drawings that allows him to push the work to a zone of oscillation and glitch. “The potential in the drawings lie in the problems that present themselves,” he says, “as the composition comes into fruition and how they are resolved or deliberately unresolved. The most successful works for me push the boundaries of difficult colour and spatial relationships.” His drawings revel in the immediacy of effect and yet supply a depth of value that rewards contemplation beyond impact.'

Taylor's solo exhibition, A Foreign Affair, is on display until 10 August 2019.

Ross Taylor at La Trobe Art Institute

Ross Taylor's Norwegian Gem, 2018 (pictured) is included in The Grammar of Glitch, now showing at La Trobe Art Institute.

The exhibition explores how the language of systems is expressed in artwork. Whether through fragmentation of the visual field in landscape drawings or the distorted forms of the sculptural figure, this exhibition offers ways of understanding how glitches in systemic regularity can produce creative ends.

The exhibition opens on 24 July and runs until 2 September 2018. For futher details, please click here.
