Ross Taylor

Abbey Scholar 2015/16

Ross Taylor feels a strong connection to Fra Angelico, Lorenzetti and Giotto. He sees himself in Rome as a ‘Dante-pilgrim’; exploring Rome and, while in the studio, exploring the surfaces of his paintings. He will visit and explore Rome – the Basilica of San Clemente, the Catacombs of the Via Latina and all of Rome’s ‘indexes of mystery’. He feels the Abbey Scholarship will have a profound effect on his practice giving him much needed time and space to develop and make new work.
