Tim Taylor's artwork spans various disparate mediums. These include photography, sculpture, film, installation and performance. His work celebrates the commonplace both as subject and material. Everyday matterials and domestic paraphernalia are used to effect transformations in appearance, meaning and scale.
He has shown locally and internationally and in a variety of locations and mediums, from gallery-based work to public installation and performance; from the city-wide installation, ‘100 Gildings’, in Ekaterinburg, Russia to the swimming of Edinburgh’s hidden river of swimming pools from the hills to the sea in a day.
He has installed permanent works throughout a number of new health-care buildings in Glasgow and is currently constructing every water tower photographed by celebrated German photographers Hilla & Bernd Becher out of matchsticks.
