16 July – 11 September 1993
Marcus Taylor’s three large-scale sculptures, from his Elevations series, explore traditionally sculptural notions of form and function, light and space. Resolutely minimal in appearance, these pared-down structures comprise just two or three geometric shapes.
The hard-edged sculptures, constructed from flawless sheets of clear acrylic, were softened by Taylor’s treatment of their surfaces: sanded to create an effect akin to that of a ghostly, diaphanous screen. Their gentle transparency means that when light penetrates each shape, the elements take on an ethereal, otherworldly presence. Optically, they seem to hover in the space, and between something familiar and something ‘other’.
