About Murray Taylor

My work is about the climate. My paintings are dominated by sky. Looking up at the sky has always been associated with deep meditative thought, prayer, and wonder – each of which we need more of during these important times. I try to capture the beauty of clouds and paint. I use rich and complex layers of paint in an effort to push the viewer to their own contemplation. Scientists aren’t sure, but they say the future weather could always be some version of gray skies . My ongoing series, Early 21st Century Skies, implies that I might be documenting skies that won’t be seen at the end of the 21st century. In 2020 I started the series Clouds’ Uncertain Future where I am breaking up the canvas into distinct parts and letting the viewer contemplate the juxtaposition.
