Beautiful exhibitions with naughty names are putting gay artist Imogen Taylor on the map. Her latest, Glory Hole is about to become the talk of K road! Glory Hole sounds provocative. The words suggest debauchery, anonymity, arousal. Perhaps you do know what it is and think it is divine. I met Imogen on a particularly wet Monday morning at Alleluya to discuss her work.
The work is a lot darker than usual, a bit moody. Maybe because I have been making it through winter and the light is different.
When the light is like this it has a huge impact on what you make. The light Taylor indicates is delicate and cold. Steam is rising visibly from our coffees and the sky outside is white.
I used to make underground comics that were quite erotic. I have been a little more overt in past shows, I hope that still comes through without me directing it too much. Given her pleasure at being called smutty, I am curious as to how she feels about this other, seemingly contradictory term. I think painting naturally has this charming element… if you are going to do something that is grotesque or hard to look at you have to start by pulling your viewer into it.
It does have to have something seductive to get people to look at it. It is capable of being many contradictory things at once, being simultaneously abstract and figurative, smutty and charming, right and wrong. She shrugs. A fittingly vague description for work that defies concrete description, work which is wonderfully contrary and exists colourfully in a grey area. Article Lucinda Bennett. Photos N.
