Probing for Innovative Clarity

“Transparency, Illusion, color, and light that enables them as Ideas that Michael Taylor has chosen to spend his career exploring. With these chemical materials, Taylor constructs architectures of light, radiant edifices that glow and expand in space just as mineral crystal structures do. His approach is extensively informed … Yet he avoids rigidity and commercial slickness by allowing things to happen in controlled chaos. The only medium that invites such manipulations and that embodies such phenomena is glass.” (Michael Taylor, A Geometry of Meaning, Hudson Hill, NY) 1.
