Decoding Visual Excess
Opening 6pm Wed 23 Nov
Exhibition runs 24 Nov - 17 Dec 2016
In a world of visual excess, this slow journey through paint reassesses the consumable objects that comprise our contemporary cultural makeup. Abandoned rubbish, half eaten junk food and curious food constructions all quietly consider notions of beauty, excess and personal identity.
Artist Nathan Taylor uses hyper-realistic painting to explore and decode a visually saturated world. Viewers will find themselves lost in the exquisitely rendered surface of a crushed beer can, an abandoned doughnut, or a heavenly confection.
Meet the artist
Nathan will be presenting a free floor talk about his work followed by tea and scones. All are welcome!
