“I try to understand the world through

understanding people”.

Anita Taylor.

   My work is about figures, faces and forms. My previous career with disadvantaged children and young people underpins my pre-occupation with the universal themes of identity, empathy and mortality. 


Whether working in art or education, I have always been interested in people and the human form. I use paint and print to explore the most appropriate way of depicting the figure.

I interpret, rather than directly translate, the images and incorporate a sense of ambivalence and ambiguity

into my work.  

In my most recent body of work I have found ways to convey a view of humanity’s shared trauma by depicting people’s underlying concerns, hopes and fears, rather than simply their external characteristics.
