"In George Taylor's work colour plays a prominent role, so in ‘Ancient Sands of Egypt’ yellow dominates and sets the right tone in response to the experience. The language abstracted from lived experience is sufficiently intelligible to convey a sense of place without it being necessarily specific. So in ‘Wild Sea Rising’, with its heaving mass of blue tinged with white one feels a response to water, which has become uncontrollable. But nothing threatens as the colour alleviates danger andthe lyricism of the touch conveys a life enhancing quality to the work. This is strong, firm, knowledgeable image-making and delight fills the room. One could live in a happy frame of mind with a picture of this kind."

"A landscape is a location comprised of space, land, organic matter, light and colour, affected by the weather and the seasons and processed via our prevailing mood or state of mind and all those manifold and subjective things that make us individuals. Some places however, are much more than the sum of their parts, just like life itself. They appear to retain a 'memory' of events that occurred there and our experience of them is in turn influenced by our knowledge of these past events. There is something indefinable about certain places that engender powerful emotions and responses, which for me are not best expressed in words. I do not paint the place I saw, but the place I experienced. I am not concerned with making a figurative representation of a place. The result is an image on a flat surface, recollecting an experience, but equally and more importantly creating a new and unique place, that is different to the one that inspired it."
