Al Taylor was known for making “drawings in space” – what the hoi polloi might call “sculpture”. Early on, he refused to delineate between two-dimensions and three-dimensions, since both equally articulated his obsessions, that is, the infinite possibilities that spring from everyday materials and gestures. This posthumous exhibition highlights Taylor’s talent at sustaining umph from a wire and a stool or seeing to it that mere hubcaps look otherworldly. Of course the key to this art-out-of-nothing aesthetic – at least the key to its success, which is guaranteed under Taylor’s deft hand – is that it’s all really lighthearted, even lyrically so.
