Phil Taylor, Abstract Paintings
Phil Taylor grew up in the Mississippi River valley along the legendary highway 61 corridor in southern Minnesota. In the mid 90’s he became interested in abstract painting after being confronted with the works of Jackson Pollack on a visit to the National Gallery in Washington DC. He has a B.A. in Studio Art from the Arts Student League of New York. He has been recently featured in PBS TV “Off 90.” He makes paintings and mixed media artworks. His works feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections. Combining unrelated aspects leads to surprising analogies. By questioning the concept of movement, he formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which supposedly private, highly subjective and unfiltered, are frequently revealing. “The process of making art for me is emotionally charging and spiritual.”
Gallery hours are 1-5 pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
