Al Taylor is often noted for the fluidity with which he moved between two and three dimensions in his artwork, creating overlaps among drawing, printmaking, painting, and sculpture. As a result, in his drawings he used unexpected material combinations that deserve close attention. Lindsey Tyne, Associate Paper Conservator in the Thaw Conservation Center, will discuss Taylor’s deliberate choice of paper and mixing of typical and atypical drawing media to achieve his intended visual effects—puddles and stains look like puddles and stains, shadows like shadows, and twisted wire like twisted wire.
The exhibition The Drawings of Al Taylor will be open for program attendees.
