Ricke Taylor - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
"Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow" - Acrylic - 18 " x 48"
Artist, Rick Taylor, was born in Fergus, Ontario. He currently resides in Mississauga. Even as a preschooler he loved to draw. His father Leslie Taylor, was a local sign writer, painting innumerable trucks, awnings and banners.
Rick taught elementary school for 27 years, while also enjoying a lively and productive career as an artist. In 2000 he left teaching to pursue a full time career as an artist. A lifelong learner, Rick has attended art classes at Humber College, Sheridan College, O.C.A.D., York University, The University of Guelph, Neilson Park Creative Centre and Springbank Visual Arts Centre.
In January, 2014 the Government of Ontario purchased four of Rick’s paintings for their collection of Canadian art.
In his urban paintings, Rick captures the atmosphere and energy of older neighbourhoods. His goal is to evoke an emotional sensation in his landscapes and recreate the sense of joy and peace he feels in the outdoors. He writes, "I'd like the viewer to look at one of my winter scenes and feel they can see their breath or hear water flowing over stones".
