While he began his studio practice as a painter, in 1985 Al 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. Published on the occasion of the exhibitionRim Jobs and Sideffects at David Zwirner, this catalogue presents a comprehensive exploration of the two series: Rim Jobs, from 1995, and Sideffects [sic], which includes works from 1995 to 1997. Both series demonstrate Taylor’s spatial concerns through multi-dimensional composition.
