Currently on view at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco is a new exhibition titled Terrestrial Syndrome, with new paintings by artists Kevin E. Taylor and Erik Otto. Taylor’s work features several different creatures engaging one another within a surrealistic landscape. While the work remains shrouded in mystery and coded with visual symbols, it is clear that the actions of the creatures are a metaphor for the uncertainty of our time. The creatures embody both human and animal characteristics, each empowered with a conscious and the ability to struggle both physically and intellectually with their surroundings.
Taylor is originally from Charleston, South Carolina and received his BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His recent solo exhibition exhibitions include Posture at Swarm Gallery in Oakland, Animalitia at Anno Domini in San Jose and the artist has a forth coming exhibition with Cerasoli Gallery in Los Angeles.
