Everard Read London presents a major exhibition of new sculptures by leading South African sculptor, Angus Taylor.
Known for his powerful, often monumental, sculptural works, Taylor works with an extraordinary range of materials from his immediate environment - Belfast granite, red jasper and the orange soil found near Johannesburg. He relishes working with challenging materials, on a scale that many sculptors find intimidating.
The inventiveness with which Taylor tackles materials positions him as a post-modern artist making reference to traditional crafting techniques, but using them to create works that are unmistakably contemporary.
Taylor’s craftsmanship, bold and visionary approach, and his original use of materials, has resulted in landmark sculptures and many public and private commissions across Africa, Europe, North America and Australia.
This is Angus Taylor's first solo exhibition in London.
