Description

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, in the forest region of the south west of Western Australia.

Taylor sought from painting a means to explore the processes of visual perception that allow the eye to register a virtually infinite range of subtlety and depth in light, colour and volume as they exist in the observable world of nature.

Bushfire sun draws on forms and atmospheric conditions in the landscape - in this case, the sun as seen through the haze of a bushfire - to address the behaviour of light and space on solid objects.
