Taylor's Artist Statement from a previous show at Ayden Gallery really sums up his work.
"Peter Taylor‚Äôs new solo exhibition Divine Play marks a continuation of the artist‚Äôs fascination with spirituality viewed through the contemplative lens of recurring characters. As with his previous work, Taylor‚Äôs paintings focus on a single figure whose facial expressions and bodily positions exude a combination of playfulness and meditative contentment. With Divine Play, Taylor has presented his most cohesive and striking depiction of these figures to date: ‚Äúthese are my personal sages, Taylor explains. They represent ‚Äúseeds sprouting knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. In light of his generation‚Äôs increasing tendency towards cynicism and disingenuousness, these characters are a breath of fresh air, not only encouraging contemplative reflection, but similarly eschewing clich√© and taboo through the knowing humour of their expressions and unselfconscious activity."
