Bio

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 of space and the process of time, it's passing, both in its interior and exterior realms.

She looks at the organic ceaseless change of matter and the notion that nothing is destroyed or created but is transformed from one state to another, in a continuous state of flux and regeneration/degradation, creating layers of memory, imprint and scarification. She tries to suspend expectation, responding to the processes and materials and nudges her work from one position to another.

Although primarily led by the processes she uses and the physicality of the medium, her work suggests a marked human presence and 'the invisabilia of our inner lives'.

She investigates internal/external psychologically imbued spaces, appropriates and abstracts information from the natural world, creating atmospheric imagery that hovers mutably at the intersection of the conscious/unconscious; at the 'twilight' of experience.

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.
