Rhona Taylor trained at Edinburgh College of Art, and now works from a studio in Edinburgh as well as at Edinburgh Printmakers. Her work explores thresholds, barriers, boundaries and transitions. Places and spaces form the starting point of her research, particularly their light, colour, scale and form, how they change over time and are linked to identity. Rhona works mainly in painting, but also printmaking, sculpture and film
“I’m interested in the ways in which we classify. My studio practice looks at how things are ordered, constructed and fit together, and what happens at the point where different elements, fragments or components meet.
Research has taken me to many interesting places, and allowed me to make work in collaboration with a diverse range of organisations including the Human Genetics Unit at the Western General Hospital, the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic and Port Edgar Marina” Rhona Taylor
The work in this exhibition is based mainly on places in Scotland, including the Firth of Forth, industrial parts of East Lothian and much of the West Coast, as well as a recent trip to Rajasthan in India.
