Diana Taylor's solo exhibition
PICTURES that show something in the moment it is being created are at the heart of the first solo exhibition of artist Diana Taylor.
Her display, entitled Climbing, Falling, takes place in the unique context of the Intervention Gallery, at the Anglican chapel, Kensal Green Cemetery.
It features between six and eight works that are semi-abstract, and incorporates cartoon and graphic elements alongside more traditional areas.
Exhibition publicity described Diana's paintings as 'deeply embedded in a flawed recollection of childhood'.
A preview tomorrow (Friday) features a specially commissioned musical interpretation of the works by the V&A Museum's resident DJ and independent music producer, Alberto Miguel.
