Will Taylor’s prints have a traditional feel: they are copper plate, hardground etchings, using only line and cross-hatch in monotone to create a range of tones. They reflect a love and fascination of the masters of the etching revival. They explore various themes: The Natural Sciences etchings have the feel of Leonardo’s notebooks and draw on his science and engineering education juxtaposed against animals and other inventions. Topographical themes are inspired by the south coast around Rye and travels around the world. His printmaking is the culmination of various working methods which include drawing and painting.
He is member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) and the Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA) exhibiting in galleries in Sussex, Kent and London, and has been a regular contributor to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
