Neil Taylor

Taylor continues his labour intensive constructions. Small sections of metal welded together create complex three dimensional forms, often involving detailed patterning where a curve or bend in a length of metal is repeated to create a matrix. This repetition suggests that a work could, theoretically, continue to sprawl and expand endlessly. Taylor's work is both formal and conceptual. The sculptures are elegant and rhythmic, encouraging the eye to trace the metal lines at a slow and steady rate. 

Born in 1945, Neil Taylor completed a Diploma of Painting at RMIT, Melbourne. His work has been regularly exhibited in Australia and overseas, and has been acquired for numerous collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria. Neil has completed a number of important sculpture commissions, including Theoretical Matter, a major work for the sculpture garden at Heide Museum of Modern Art. Taylor currently lives and works in Melbourne.
