Exclusive Interview: Kevin Earl Taylor

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.
