This collection of paintings examines the disparate elements found drawing boundaries between natural and synthetic environments. Within the works, scenarios populated by artifacts and symbolism are presented through appropriation and visual fabrication - ultimately setting a "metaphysical museum" backdrop. The exhibition title is loosely adapted from Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel’s photo series “Evidence”. Fittingly, two of the photos from the series are seen mid-installation within the painting “Dead Evidence”; a painting which reminds the viewer that even as humankind’s urgent march toward technological advancement accelerates, our mortality constantly grounds us.

Coinciding with the exhibition, I updated my artist statement:
The objects I produce are interrogations. They exist as curious inquiries into the ostensible dichotomy between the human animal and mutating partitions of nature. Using painting as a language, I propose mysterious, abstract narratives which are simultaneously given ground by familiar, objective imagery. Amalgamating scientific, genetic and anthropological source material, I survey and ultimately depict hybrid landscapes where diverse aspects of human physiology mesh with the origins of species. Through the merger of these methods, my exploration into the creative process develops. – Kevin Earl Taylor
The late and great Justin Van Hoy made some monumental waves during his brief life here on planet earth. After co-founding THIS gallery, he authored Milk and Honey; an elegant hardcover exposé on contemporary artists living in California. I was lucky enough to be his friend and be detected by his creative radar. Shortly after Justin's passing, THIS gallery shut it's doors and passed the torch. On August 7th, Slow Culture will very respectively tip it's hat toward the momentum created through their physical space and predecessors. Milk and Honey brings together many of the artists included in the book and honors the work and workers who cleared the path for much more to come.
I'll have a piece in the Duck Show, a mega flock of artists presenting quack relevant works (curated by Ryan Travis Christian).
Opening reception March 28 at Minotaur Projects (Los Angeles) 6-9pm.
My good buddy Tim Cohen has an art exhibit this weekend at Little Lodge in San Francisco.
Little Lodge is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibit titled Trick Playopening Saturday October 11th.Presenting a rare glimpse into the visual art world of musician Tim Cohen. Better know as front man of the bands Fresh and Onlys & Magic Trick, Cohen has created a rich musical career rooted in the local rock scene. Unbeknownst to many is Cohen's personal body of work which has created a visual language of it's own.
Trick Play features selected drawings on paper and paintings that explore an abstract world of sports mythology through recurring symbolism and hidden narratives. Cohen's unrefined approach draws similarities to the immediacy and raw energy experienced through a home recording session. Sometimes the first thought is the best thought. Come see for yourself.
Opening reception Saturday Oct 11th 7-10 pm
On view Saturday and Sundays 12- 5pm.
