In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor

Anita Taylor, Pause, Charcoal on Paper, 38 x 28cm, 2019

Drawing Projects UK is pleased to present In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor from 1 - 30 June 2019. 

For more than three decades, Anita Taylor has been making charcoal drawings that explore the relationship of the female subject (as artist and model) and the defining acts of scrutiny, gaze and feeling. This interrogation of gesture and expression has led to a sequence of drawings that question not just the appearance, but the emotional or haptic sensation of being inside a skin or body that can only be seen or recognised by the self with the aid of a mirror. 

Anita Taylor has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, and has drawings in a number of public collections, including the V&A and the Jerwood Collection. In addition to her practice as an artist, Anita Taylor is a curator, educator and writer, and is the founding Director of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize project and Drawing Projects UK. 

In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor is presented in The Entrance Hall and open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm and on Sundays 10am to 2pm.

Additional drawings may be seen by appointment  and during events in the main gallery - The Chief Secretary’s Office.
