"I don't want my art to be timeless,
but to be time itself"

Al Taylor


David Zwirner

Sept 14 - Oct 23

"While he began his studio practice as a painter, in 1985 Taylor devised a uniquely innovative approach to process and materials that encompassed two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional objects. Taylor ultimately sought to expand the possibilities of vision by creating new ways of experiencing and imagining space, and his work provides the viewer with an insight into the artist’s thinking and his investigations of perception across several dimensions.
Taylor saw no distinction between his three-dimensional works and his drawings, even going so far as to dismiss the term “sculpture” altogether for his constructions, referring to them instead as “drawings in space” or as “drawing instruments.”

During an interview in 1992, when he was asked by Ulrich Loock about the relationship between drawing and three-dimensionality in his work, the artist responded, “It’s one and the same…Working on paper or on pieces really is the same thing; it’s all one activity that I am not interested in separating.”
