Description:
Alasdair Taylor, originally from Rosshire, was a graduate of Glasgow School of Art. He moved to Portencross on the Ayrshire coast in 1967 where he immersed himself in his immediate surroundings. Painting directly on to washed up boards and planks which he found along the shoreline, he experimented with paint, surfaces and collage to create powerful, emotional works employing an Abstract Expressionist style. Taylor had a prolific output.
