Prospect 11: Doug Taylor

December 15, 2006 - February 18, 2007


Curator:
Year 2006 Theme Emerging Artists, Nova Scotian Artists, Painting

Born in Sydney and now living in Halifax, CKDU broadcaster Doug Taylor attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design as a mature student, graduating in 1992. His source images are photographs of recreations such as country fairs, demolition derbies and Khyber Club performances. Taylor recreates these scenes in a painting style that borders on the caricatural, with mannerisms suggestive of the self-taught artist. This exhibition is part of the Prospect series, which introduces emerging Nova Scotian artists in a public art gallery context.

OPENING RECEPTION jointly with Anna Torma: Needleworks, on Sunday, January 14 at 2:00pm. The artist will be present. The free charter bus leaves 5163 Duke Street at 1:30pm., returning downtown at 4:00pm.
