About the work

Howard Taylor is one of Australia's most significant artists. The land affected by the phenomena of light and weather has been the single unifying factor in the work he has produced over six decades. His acute observation of the Western Australian bush, in combination with unrelenting experimentation, has allowed him to create a personal style and approach. Taylor's observations of this unique landscape reach an astonishing summation in Light source reverse. The theme of sun/sphere is emblematic of his exploration of light, perception and form. His works seek to reconcile the almost imperceptible nuances in the landscape by focusing on the processes of differentiation central to human perception.
