Ultraviolets by Tim Taylor

Detail, "Night Light", RomeArt Installation 2015


Taylor painted with UV paints since the latest Peter Max poster was available at the the corner store. But when decades later he experimented again using stage pigments he was after something else. Taylor had painted a number of sets for theater shows including a gigantic forest backdrop for "Wind in the Willows". He made a working time machine for "Time After Time". After he himself was in "Guys and Dolls" playing Big Jule, while also making the set for his New York City sewer scene, and just after "Spackle Forms" were shown in real life at Claremont's "Fresh" show, were the first experiments with visible and invisible ultraviolet stage paints in the two and three dimensions.
