Taylor was a New York-based artist who exhibited predominately in Europe. His imaginative and playful style is exemplified in work that explores multiple angles and viewpoints. Taylor saw his sculptures as three-dimensional drawings and used industrial materials such as inner tubes, plexi-glass and foamed plastic floats in his work.
