Extinct Leaf Page was created from a fossil the artist found, and depicts leaves from an extinct plant. Lizard Page reveals an artful composition of lizards with unusual markings. This image was inspired by the carved lizards and toads that adorn the handrail of pulpit of the renowned Viennese church of St. Stephen, symbolizing the fight between good and evil.

His work has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the Carnegie International, two Sydney Biennials, and three Whitney Biennials.

Guggenheim Museum, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the Kemper Museum of Art, Kansas City; and the Reina Sofia, Madrid. Taaffe presently resides and works in New York City and Connecticut.
