2 July 2012 | Hyperrealist painter Nathan Taylor is the subject of a new monograph.

Nathan Taylor: The poetics of excess, by Emily Cloney and Taylor’s Sydney dealer Michael Reid, will be launched in September to coincide with Taylor’s next solo exhibition at Michael Reid.

Taylor typically focuses on the detritus of urban Australian life, painting overflowing bins, rubbish in gutters and worn pavements as evidence of the careless waste and neglect that occurs in modern life.
