New works from Peter Taylor this November in our office

Peter Taylor 'Untitled' - hand cut paper and graphite on paper - 8x10 inches (2011)

This coming November alongside Joao Ruas in our main gallery and Andrea Offermann in our project room we’re excited to showcase a collection of new works on paper from Canada’s very own Peter Taylor.

Taylor’s work evolves around a recurring theme of finding balance, and finding joy in the search for balance.

This is the 2nd in our sneak peek series leading up to our ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit taking place during Art Basel this December in Miami at the Gen Art Vanguard Fair (see previous post for full details). We’re aiming to have a digital collector preview go out the week of the show (Dec. 4th – Dec. 7th), so please let us know if you’d like to receive that.
Look for additional ‘sneak peeks’ to be posted in the coming weeks and be sure to watch Arrested Motion for live blogging from Miami during Art Basel / Gen Art Vanguard.
The work of Peter Taylor is all about finding ‘balance’, both in life and in the creative process. Showing strength in both drawing and collage based work, Taylor‘s latest series continues to explore themes of joy; and how one needs to find balance in all things to achieve that. I have to say that looking at his work brings on a calming, meditative state of sorts for me.
Taylor comments further on the characters that populate his world, “Sometimes I think they are enlightened and wise, but most of the time I think they have found wisdom to enjoy the present, while celebrating their personal journey. They are therapeutic for me and help me find my own balance.”
In addition to the collage based piece previewed above, Taylor will also be exhibiting five beautifully detailed graphite works on paper that have been nicely custom framed for the fair.
His contributions to the ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit are the first step in building towards his debut Los Angeles solo show with us during fall 2010.
Taylor has shown all over North America during the past few years, building a loyal following for his Budha inspired work in the process. His work has shown with such respected galleries as BLVD. Gallery (Seattle), Gallery 1988 (Los Angeles/San Francisco), Gallery 16 1/2 (Vancouver) and was also included in the ‘Superhero’ exhibit curated by Murphy Design at this past summer’s ComiCon Convention in San Diego.
