Artist Andy Taylor shares his passion for painting with Ann Korologos Gallery
"A painting is its own thing," says Andy Taylor. "It exists by itself. It’s its own object. Its origins may come from something that’s outside, but it has to have its own life. So, it has to have its own depth and nuances because you aren’t just looking at a willow bush, well, you’re looking at a willow bush that’s about six steps from a willow bush. I see it, I draw it, maybe photograph it, too. I bring it back, maybe color the drawing, then I put in on the canvas. I don’t want to go out there and try and paint that willow bush sitting down. I want to bring it back and put on the canvas what I remember it as, what I felt like it was. Not try and get the little bits and pieces right."
