In a career that spanned almost six decades Howard Taylor worked largely outside the mainstream, living and practicing his craft close to the small township of Northcliffe, on south-western Australia. 

One of Australia's most revered artists, Howard Taylor placed rigorous and intriguing demands upon specialists, interpreters, himself and the public over six decades. Based in the Western Australian forest town of Northcliffe, Taylor captured the changing light and colour of the Australian bush with unparalleled conceptual subtlety and artistic precision. His work demonstrates for us all that the more one looks the more enlightening experience becomes, and that the resources of art are constantly replenished by the very problems it seems to pose.
