Will Taylor channels a traditional feel through his prints, with copper plate etchings, using only line and crosshatch in monotone to create a range of tones. They reflect a love and fascination of the masters of the etching revival.
“I explore various themes. My ‘Natural Science’s etchings channel the feel of Leonardo’s notebooks and draw on my science and engineering education juxtaposed against animals and other inventions.”
Topographical themes are inspired by Taylor’s south coast and international travels. Printmaking is the culmination of various working methods which include drawing and painting.
Will Taylor is a member of the RBA (since 2018), the SGFA (since 2005) and a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition since 2015.
