Theresa Taylor is a contemporary visual artist based in the north west of England. She works from her studio near Lancaster and for several years has been a member of Art Lab Contemporary Print Studios, University of Central Lancashire, Preston., UK.
Her practice rests on the experience and process of time and it's passing in both its interior and exterior realms. She looks at the organic ceaseless change of matter/us and the notion that nothing is destroyed or created but is transformed from one state to another, in a continuous state of flux of regeneration/degradation.
Although abstract in essence her work suggests a marked human presence- and 'the invisabilia of our inner lives' She investigates internal/external psychologically imbued spaces, appropriating information from the natural world and creates atmospheric imagery that hovers mutably at the intersection of the conscious/unconscious, the 'twilight' of our experience. Through printmaking processes, primarily, but not exclusively, she suggests layers of experiences and the scarification of being alive and of history.
Theresa Taylor's work references a psychoanalytic framework from her many years in the past as a psychotherapist and prior to that an art therapist, within the NHS and in private practice. Her clinical work was pursued alongside her art practice for many years - however she has been a full-time artist since 2012..
Her work is shown across the UK and internationally.
