“Welcome to my private studio in the Highlands of Scotland, from where we share with you a selection of my original Masterworks paintings and our current offering of Limited-Edition Prints.
It is in my very heart and soul to create works of art, which has been my life’s work, as a professional fine artist. However, my work does not rely solely on the passion I have for it. Commitment, discipline and focus are also required. Second-best simply will not do, which is why everything that I work on is given my undivided attention. To purchase a Paul Taggart Masterworks original painting, is to acquire part of my ‘being’; for that is what I have invested in every work of art that finds itself hanging on a collectors wall – something of me.
The quality of light lies at the heart of my Masterworks, my signature feature. Traditional techniques form the bedrock of my painting method and working with oils allows me to create rich and exciting works of art – seemingly three-dimensional spaces filled with light, space, mood and movement – whether a large scale composition, or a miniature. My goal – to capture the very essence of a moment in time – one that will evoke a memory, or an emotional reaction.
The ‘craft’ of my painting owes everything to a repertoire of processes rooted in an established heritage. Without the specialist knowledge passed down through the centuries, it would not be possible for me to work in the style that I have carefully nurtured and developed over my professional life. It is a method that requires an unhurried approach, with each painting worked up gradually in layers – works take many months, even years, to complete and comprise of many applied layers.
I tend to work in Collections; collections that ‘tell a story’, in pictures, which you will find as you browse through my galleries and our Fine Art Videos on my official site. Chronicling the world in which we live, has formed the nucleus of my collections, for that world is full of interesting events, lives, accomplishments and undertakings; many of which are disappearing into the mists of time. Following the subject of each of these collections has taken any number of years, not to mention the time taken to produce the resultant works of art.
There have been collections centred on theatre companies and musical sessions; country pursuits and activities; traditional artisans and craftspeople; community events and charitable works; not forgetting meaningful landscapes, cityscapes and village life. Reflecting another tradition in art, these are ‘conversation pieces’, where each painting tells its own story, within the bigger picture of the Collection.
From the early days of ‘solo’ exhibitions and ‘mixed’ shows in galleries, my work is now sold or commissioned privately, through occasional, ‘invitation-only’ Private Views and Private Viewing by appointment. Along with the occasional fund-raising exhibition in support of a charity or community project, these are now the sole routes through which collectors can acquire my originals.
