Andrew Taylor – Sculptor
‘Ebb In Time ’
After studying Fine Art at Curtin University in the early 1980’s majoring in sculpture I discovered 6 beautiful acres of natural bushland set above a beautiful river valley in Gidgegannup. Here we created a home from mud bricks, rammed earth and timber, powered by the sun and wind.
With the support of my wonderful wife Laura we built a thriving landscape and garden art business supplying limited edition and one off sculptural pieces to builders, architects, landscape designers and garden design shops. My work can be found in thousands of sites around Australia and overseas including schools, commercial shopfronts and private residences.
Over the years I was fortunate to work alongside some highly skilled individuals honing my skills in casting and pattern making techniques then in 2015 I split the business and created ‘Ebb in Time’. Returning to my roots in sculpture and with a fascination for kinetic art I created clocks and pendulums this progressed to boats and finally figurative sculpture.
In early 2017, I started on a very personal series themed around my journey and the value of the creative process as a means of self-reflection. I became fascinated with the emotional narrative, the ability to tell a story through aesthetic clues- position, numbers and materials.
Recently I have started showing my work and have pieces at the East End Gallery in Beverley and Jahroc Gallery in Margaret River.
