Event Details

Michael Taylor is widely-known for his cut and laminated glass works, geometric constructions, and fractal abstractions. He is inspired by everything from subatomic particles to music. Taylor was part of the first generation of artists to learn from the founders of the Studio Glass movement. His artistic career has been intertwined with decades as a university professor, including a more than twenty-year tenure as a professor in the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology. The academic setting allowed Taylor to explore scientific, philosophical, and artistic ideas. Traversing Parallels encapsulates his passion for glass and his unquenchable enthusiasm for inquiry. Through his artistic investigations, Taylor’s work invites you to utilize your own scientific-like observations to analyze how his work reflects on the implications of a rapidly changing world. His work is both triumphant and cautionary, simultaneously celebrating technological breakthroughs and worrying about their implications. By using glass to make these theoretical connections, Taylor’s work inspires contemplation of social and scientific issues, and continues to take the material of glass into new expressive terrain.
