A Young Girl Seated by her Window

Naylor, Martin

An enigmatic work, giving only half its meaning to the viewer. Born in Morley, near Leeds, Martin Naylor first studied art at Dewsbury and Batley Technical and Art School (1961-65) followed by a year at Leeds Art College and three years at the Royal College of Art (1967-1970). From 1973-74, he was Gregory Fellow in Sculpture at Leeds University. A Young Girl Seated by her Window is one of the works Naylor made during this period. It was bought with aid of a contribution from the LACf in 1975. In his works, Naylor makes innovative use of various media, in combinations including painting, sculpture, found objects, photography and installations. He was Britain’s representative at the 1977 Sao Paulo Biennal, Brazil and between 1971 and 1985, won a number of prestigious awards, including An Arts Council Award, a Gulbenkian Foundation Visual Arts Award and a Henry Moore Foundation Award.
