In June 2017, Contemporary Six held a fantastic solo exhibition for the fine artist Colin Taylor. The show included an array of Taylor's latest artworks that informed a commission by SimpsonHaugh Architects based in Manchester.
In 2015, Colin was asked by Ian Simpson and Rachel Haugh to create twelve paintings that documented a two-year construction of the commercial building No.1 Spinningfields.
In one distinct body of work, Colin has bookended the changing landscape in a series of paintings that narrate the architectural accomplishment from beginning to end.
‘New Lines in Space’ will show a mixture of paintings and mixed media pieces under the genre of landscape painting and urbanism. The works are unique and authentic, and individually celebrate the inspiring and transformative landscape of Manchester city centre.
