A native of Toronto, Harrison Taylor works mainly in photography, and within this medium explores his passion for abstraction, resulting in a unique fusion, which challenges the conventional 'limitations' that photography imposes.
Taylor received his Studio Art undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College where he focused on photography and architecture. He then furthered his studies in Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has been working professionally as an artist in Toronto for over five years now and has built a respectable portfolio having exhibited works in such events as Powerball and Nuit Blanche, in addition to having work acquired for NBC’s permanent collection.
"I seek and make subjects that emulate patterns which can be taken out of their context of size and time. This creates a shift in scale that allows for a reinterpretation of preconceived visuals and ideas. As a result, my work suggests a constant struggle between nature and order; a play between what we know and what we are allowed to make up.”
