Michael Taylor: a tonic for lovers of good painting

Thanks to Peter Fay for his post on Gallery 9’s current show by the eminent landscape painter Michael Taylor

“He might well be advancing in years,but Michael Taylor’s new canvasses at Gallery 9 look as if they could have been painted by someone full of the feelings of youth. There is a wonderful freshness and vivacity in most of these works. Michael does sound a few deeper notes that hold a sense of warning of the coming of darker times, but for the most part these works are such a tonic for lovers of good painting.

As you look at the show you will understand why James Mollison named Michael one of the greats of Australian abstract painting.”
