Martin Browne Contemporary presents an exhibition of new paintings by AJ Taylor.

Taylor’s landscapes depict the Australian environment in almost photographic detail. However on closer examination, the rocky cliffs and serene waters fracture into abstract shapes and marks, while the surrounding vegetation disintegrates into flat abstract mark-making and areas of saturated colour. In the time-consuming and painstaking technique Taylor has developed, layer upon layer of paint has been applied and then rubbed back, creating an almost polished surface whilst building an illusion of depth and light into the two-dimensional field. 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 20 September 2018
Exhibition closes: 14 October 2018
Location: Martin Browne Contemporary, 15 Hampden St, Paddington, NSW
