Kevin Earl Taylor is a native from Charleston, South Carolina. In 1995 he received a B.F.A. from The Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2006, he moved to San Francisco where he lived until relocating to Los Angeles, CA at the close of 2019. Although primarily an oil painter, Kevin often interpolates audio/visual elements into a broadening productive practice. His work has been exhibited and published throughout the US, as well as internationally.
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.
