Picture Gallery: Colin Taylor ‘New Lines in Space’ at Manchester’s Contemporary Six Gallery
New Lines in Space, a solo exhibition by artist Colin Taylor, is being held in the heart of Manchester at the independent gallery Contemporary Six. The show features a collective series of paintings combining architecture and abstraction, inspired by a newly-constructed building in the Spinningfields area.
The exhibition was initiated when Taylor was commissioned by the architecture firm SimpsonHaugh to document the build of No.1 Spinningfields to mark the 30th anniversary of the practice. Rather than using the traditional method of digital photography to record the building’s evolution, Taylor created a series of unique paintings to produce an innovative interpretation of the two-year process. Born in the East Midlands, Taylor studied art and drama at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham in the mid-1980s following which he taught 20th Century Art History at a local FE College. In 1987, he relocated to Manchester, worked for The Guardian and the Manchester Evening News and then for an advertising agency.

@PurpleGooner Phenomenal Woman is our favourite but love the fact the congresswomen in the US are quoting this one in response to Trump.
People shouting 'send her back' at Trump rallies, the future PM waving a kipper around, warnings of a UK recession thanks to Brexit. We've never felt so simultaneously depressed and baffled by the state of the world. Think we'll look at photos of kittens for the rest of the day.
