Opening night at the Nancy Sever Gallery of the new exhibition by Ben Taylor.

‘Ben Taylor is a graduate of the Canberra School of Art and was a lecturer in Printmaking there from 1983 to 1985. He has been exhibiting throughout Australia since 1983 and his work is to be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Australian National University, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Brisbane, the University of New South Wales, the Newcastle Regional Gallery, Parliament House and Artbank.

Taylor has a home in the Monaro where he works in an old fettler’s cottage surrounded by decaying railway buildings. The trains no longer run. Grass grows up through the tracks and the cows are gradually pushing over the railway workers’ sheds. But it is in this unlikely setting that the artist finds escape from the pressures of the city and inspiration to nurture his artistic creativity.’
