Press Release

The natural world comes together with man-made structures in Cordell Taylor’s sculptures. Comparing the construction of his pieces to the formation of rocks or crystals, Taylor calls his works “a metamorphosis of Nature and Man,” and that metamorphosis comes about through the artist's knowledge of the materials he uses, as well as his ability to employ shape, color, and texture in ways that change our perceptions of form and space. Shapes intersect in unexpected combinations that defy gravity while maintaining a sense of balance. “Each shape grows from or supports another,” Taylor says, and that organic sense of composition provides his work with its clear center.

Working in steel, the artist brings his experience as a professional ironworker and fabricator strongly into play. He makes steel appear alternately earthbound and weightless, and gives it a surprising range of textures and colors — from light, glowing surfaces to dark, somber shades. When that variety is played off against the shifts in scale and proportion that Taylor expertly executes, the result is a body of work that challenges and stimulates the viewer.
