British artist Sam Taylor-Wood utilizes photography, film, video, soundtrack, and digitized imagery to concoct dramatic episodes that resound with themes of control, obsession, and denial. In much of her work, panoramic interior scenes imply a sequentially unfolding drama, and reflect her inspiration from multi-paneled old-master paintings. Taylor-Wood's perplexing, broken visual narratives stretch our emotional imagination, challenging us to suggest the apparently missing dialogue, film, or image to make sense of her unusually modern, staged realities. This book includes three interpretive essays and an interview with the artist Elaborate fold-out reproductions of the panoramic pieces, enlarged details from these series, and stills from her films and videos exhibit the impressive scope of Taylor-Wood's work.
