Art: Matthew Weston Taylor’s little characters make a hazy dream-world

Matthew Weston Taylor’s artwork makes for perfect coffee break viewing. On first glance his paintings might seem like a hazy collection of obscure blobs, but if you scrunch up your eyes and remove yourself from the chaos surrounding you for just a minute you’ll see dozens of little characters squatting on tropical beaches, hunched up about to dive into pools and brooding in the midst of a copse of trees. The raw edges and muted colours make for a welcome break from the sharp angles and defined lines which usually regulate the images we find around us, and Matthew’s dreamworld is one we’re happy to drift into.
