Peter Taylor: Australian Sculptor by Peter Armstrong & Pam Taylor | HB
Peter Taylor: Australian Sculptor celebrates the artworks of Peter Taylor, one of Australia’s leading contemporary sculptors.
Taylor rose to prominence in the early 1980s, renowned for his distinctive sculptures carved from Tasmanian timbers. Over three decades he produced a body of work that captivated art critics and art lovers, with his works being praised by Patrick White as ‘the stuff of
dreams’ and Richard Flanagan as ‘extraordinary’.
His most significant commission was the coat of arms for the Senate, Parliament House, Canberra. Yet his career was not without controversy: his sculpture of the crucifixion was labelled by the media as ‘Tasmania’s most controversial work of art’.
Featuring a wonderful collection of works spanning Taylor’s career, Peter Taylor: Australian Sculptor is a tribute to an extraordinary artist whose works continue to delight and amaze to this day.
This book, illustrated with photographs by Uffe Schultz, will introduce a wider public to
the remarkable sculpture and related works of Peter Taylor.
