Abstract: For Taylor drawing is a fundamental discipline for creative development, used both as a means to encounter and examine the world, and as a departure point for new understanding and the identification of content. For more than three decades she has been making charcoal drawings that explore the relationship of the female subject (as artist and model) and the defining acts of scrutiny, gaze and feeling. This interrogation of gesture and expression has led to a sequence of drawings that question not just the appearance, but the emotional or haptic sensation of being inside a skin or body that can only be seen or recognised by the self with the aid of a mirror. The ink drawings explore more expansive themes with reference to historical precedent, narratives and event. With fluid expression they explore, interpret and re-situate the depiction and representation of their female characters and subjects. The exhibition at Drawing Projects UK provides the opportunity to view the range of her drawing practice and includes a number of large-scale charcoal drawings that challenge perceptions of identity, self and portrayal and a selection of ink drawings that explore narrative and subjects that include the A mon seul desir, Ghosting: Stanley and Daphne, and the Wives' Tales series.
