Simon Taylor, local Manchester Artist
The Artist

After graduating in 1994 with BA (Hons) in
Fine Art Simon Taylor has exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions
throughout the UK and has sold images for publication worldwide.

Using various mediums including photography
and painting, the work is part of a continuing project started
in 1993 based around ideas of perception, questioning the validity
and source of received visual information.

His current work, ‘Memory Stills’ ,
looks at film images in the western world. The images are traditionally
painted onto canvas, which at first appear to be abstract, painted
without detail.

The title ‘Memory Still’ is used as these
images are indeed derived from film stills but are reproduced
in a subconscious/abstract way like a memory. Simon says:

“Taking a fleeting film still
out of its visual and traditional context gives the viewer
upon recognition the realisation that we all hold and share
vast amounts of visual data. Offering
a subconscious connection by triggering a memory, the viewer
can then place the image in the correct context of their previous
visual experience, in turn giving the image a narrative and
a function.”

Simon has had exhibitions in Manchester,
Kendal, Stockport, Salford, Liverpool and London.
