In anticipation of Terrestrial Syndrome opening Saturday, September 12th
Interview by The Shooting Gallery
Kevin Earl Taylor has been a good friend of The Shooting Gallery since his first show here in 2007. After growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, Taylor now takes full advantage of what the city has to offer. He regularly plays music at San Francisco cafes, hosts zine making parties in his Union Square studio, and self publishes clever books like Punny Fages.
Yet behind this busy body there is a contemplative artist who disagrees with society’s relationship to nature. The notion that humans, animals, and nature can exist as separate entities does not sit well with Kevin. He reacts by painting an alternative universe; one where animals and humans meld together in harmony. For such an unconventional guy, we had to propose an unconventional interview. Look on to discover what’s really in Kevin Taylor’s head.
Where did you grow up?
What did your drawings look like when you were a kid?
Last thing you ate?
Favorite place to grab a drink?
Who is your best friend in the whole wide world?
What time of day (or night) are you most productive?
What does your studio look like right now?
Which paintbrush is your favorite?
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
How is Terrestrial Syndrome different than any show you’ve had before?
What statement does your art make about society at large?
How would you describe your personality?
We hope to see you at Kevin Taylor’s opening on Saturday, September 12th.
