Neil Taylor’s meticulous and realistic representations of the Australian bush underpin a personal approach and attraction to subject: “I see a landscape painter’s job as finding where the essence of nature and the nature of painting overlap. Stumbling into these places is a random and intuitive process. Often it’s found in an image that drops into my mind as I’m awakening from a dream. At other times it’s something I see briefly out of a car window, or stumble upon as I go over the hundreds of photos from a day’s bushwalk. The works have in common a wordless instantaneous poetry.”
