A stripe seen from head-on is a dot, a dot seen from the side could very well be a stripe.
Brussels-based Canadian artist Zin Taylor is working his way through the Story of Stripes and Dots, a look at how art is made, and what are the building blocks of creative action. He’s on Chapter 2, focused on pattern and form. (Above: A Record Cover, ink on paper; Below: Seahorse with markings, photograph)
He’s essentially interrogating sculpture’s basic language, say the notes for his recent exhibition at Jessica Bradley Art + Projects in Toronto: “How do forms come about? Do materials have a will of their own, content to speak through Zin Taylor’s hands as long as he’s able to give voice to matter’s inner thought?”
The Calgary born artist has shown widely in Europe, including an exhibition of Stripes and Dots (Chapter 1) at the MuHKA in Antwerp.
