The artistic gaze of Al Taylor is loaded with playful, everyday poetry where even the most banal objects and phenomena are granted a position of glory. Puddles of dog piss, peas, thumbs and the like are granted special status in Taylor’s bipartite universe, where sculptures and prints – the three-dimensional and two-dimensional – enter a unique dialogue with each other.
The artistic experiment is reduced to an absolute minimum in Taylor’s works. He sees, hears or finds, then lets the phenomenon be seen from numerous angles and points of view. As he said himself: "Instead of forcing myself onto some anonymous objects, I try to find a method that will allow them to form their own logic beyond me." Regardless of how prosaic or down-to-earth Taylor's objects are, they always end in wry yet uncompromising poetry.
