‘… or the Evening Redness in the West’ – an exhibition of photographs and drawings by Phil Taylor’
Exhibition at DPM Images Gallery, Brighton, UK 27/06 – 02/08/2012
This recent body of work was created during a three month period in 2011 while living in Tucson, Arizona USA. The images in the work represent a personal visual interpretation of historical, social, political and cultural elements of the region. They form part of a journal of landscapes, people and the environment of towns and cities. The visual language ranges from portraiture to pictorialism, landscape and abstraction.
The subjects depicted in the body of work include cultural festivals such as the “Dia de los Muertos”, images of the US/Mexican border, the high desert landscape, Native American Reservations, gun culture and the Barrio Viejo in Tucson.
A limited edition of four A2 Giclee prints on Somerset paper of exhibition posters designed by Angus Mackenzie and Nadine Shaban will be available during the exhibition (depicted above).
