Winter Show 2012-13: Fraser Taylor: Diagrams and Seams

For its Winter show Lula Café is pleased to present the work of Fraser Taylor. In his exhibition, titled Diagrams and Seams, Taylor presents a combination of monotypes, and stencils on paper and large scale multi-media paintings using deconstructed garments and other subtly integrated found objects layered with thickly applied, almost charred or clotted black and white paint. The near monumental canvases are at once minimal and packed with subtle variations in texture, and familiar objects are made strange. Fraser Taylor was born in Britain. He was a founding member of the London based fiber-arts collective The Cloth. He currently lives in Chicago and teaches at the School of the Art Institute. His work has been exhibited internationally. A reception will be held at Lula, December 4th, from 6-9pm
