John Taylor, Glasgow Print Studio,

. Glasgow. The title at one oi the pictures

here is The Evil That Men Do and it

might stand tor the theme oi this

exhibition. Certainly it has a grim

resonance in a week when the

atrocities oi two world wars were

marked by another with the bomb at

t Enniskillen. Again and again Taylor

shows images oi bodies or more olten

traces oi bodies - lying in a tomb. In the

distance rows oi identical crosses

suggest an iniinity oi war graves and in pictures like The Heap or Layer upon

1 Layerthe iull horrors oi carnage and

1 mass graves are conironted head on.

Figures have been heaped into a

pyramid, piled into the ground with no

more dignity than a Iorryload oi lish

and they rot and mingle, one with

another in a huge amorphous mass.

Anonymity is a strong theme. It is the commonality oi suilering that is being stressed and none oi the bodies has individual ieatures. They lie in iamiliar, still-human positions, with bent knees and tilted heads, and more olten than not in couples. Sometimes the iorrn oi the body has become no more than an imprint left on the walls oi the tomb, like a iossil at a lite.

For all that, they are not the most shocking oi pictures. Taylor is dealing with universality rather than reportage and no where is this more apparent than in his use oi colour. Who would, aiterall, think oi painting a coitin sky blue or lemon yellow. They are beautiiul, luminous tones and sometimes the whole picture becomes almost an abstraction oi death. (Sally Kinnes)
