    About The Work

    Diverse in palette and composition, Tait’s paintings and drawings explore tensions between the figurative and the abstract, the beautiful and the grotesque, the logical and the absurd. His recent body of work takes unmediated material - either from his imagination and memory, or from direct observation - as a source, serving as a starting point for intuitive, potentially unexpected compositions led by catching a Zeitgeist. 

    Culture has re-presented nature as a form of nostalgia and we could say that a sense of lost origins has come to define this experience. He doesn’t necessarily intend for the work to provide answers as such, as he says, “I am quite prepared for the work to be wrong and for me to have completely missed the point.” 

    For him, the language of paint and painting is emphatically of the world, and yet through its history capable of transcending this material state to be, and to comment on a sense of being that exists beyond the unsayable.
