Paul Taylor

Paul studied fine art at Chelsea School of Art and Sheffield Polytechnic specialising in painting, print making and photography. He has taught at many art and design faculties including Leeds College of Art and Design, Bradford Regional College of Art and Design, Goldsmiths University and University Centre Croydon; where he was formerly Acting Program Leader for the Fine Art degree programme. His own work and teaching has explored the combination of New Media with traditional methodologies and approaches to drawing, painting and photography with site specific events, installation with multi-media projections, and urban environments interventions wiht, for instance, the Croydon 'Skyline' project. Additionally, Paul has been a lifelong practitioner of traditional darkroom and analogue skills, with extensive digital knowledge based on studio and location photography and video. He has delivered these techniques via teaching and lecturing to students studying fashion, graphics and a range of other art and design courses. Paul has also worked as a freelance documentary photographer, contributing to various publications and organisations. He trained in Holography in San Francisco during a Rockefeller scholarship, and subsequently with colleagues established the Holographic facility at Goldsmiths College, London University. His work has also been widely exhibited, with his more current images being based on multi-exposure object photography, exploring the nature of film as a layered recording medium to refelect the nature of memory, loss and imagination within traditional approaches to 'Still Life'.
