The delicate Postminimalist sculptures and drawings of the American artist Al Taylor (1948–1999) were for a long time better known in Europe than in the U.S., despite Taylor’s residing in New York. Laboring quietly from the mid-1980s until his premature death from cancer at the age of 51, Taylor made abstract drawings and sculptures derived from found materials that refresh both abstraction and Postminimalism with their gentle humor and lightness of touch. Working in a decade that favored less discreet gestures, Taylor never loomed large in the New York art world’s consciousness (despite his brief tenure as a studio assistant to Robert Rauschenberg). Alongside an increasing number of exhibitions, this publication helps to remedy that oversight, providing a catalogue raisonné of Taylor’s graphic works, thereby retrieving a previously little-known aspect of his oeuvre. Aside from the published prints, it also reproduces all of the artist’s proofs and variants, which often differ significantly from the final versions.

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Michael Semff.

The playful ease and subtle humor of Al Taylor's drawings made him an artist's artist par excellence. When he died of lung cancer at age 51 in 1999, he left a large body of work--of the constructions he thought of as three- dimensional drawings, made of broomsticks and wires and tin cans and linoleum and other clean-lined debris, with which he "drew" in the air; and then piles upon piles of drawings themselves, of which Charles Yoder has written that they are "softly nuanced, surely handled and ever changing." The illustrations here offer highlights from both his estate and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, as well as a few sculptural works.

Published by Gagosian Gallery.
Edited by Jennifer Loh and Debbie Taylor. Essay by Klaus Kertess.

Walking the beaches of Hawaii in 1998, Al Taylor found pieces of styrofoam debris, "floaters" used to mark fishermen's nets. Turning away from painting, he began drilling holes into the sides of these objects and joining them to bamboo sticks. These objects, often accompanied by drawings, recall outrigger canoes and stand as metaphors for Polynesian culture.
