WILD: A Solo Exhibit by Kevin Earl Taylor

Kevin Earl Taylor is a native of Charleston and now lives in San Francisco, California.
 
Taylor’s paintings depict stark, surreal landscapes that seem like moments frozen in time. Animals confront the viewer and each other, forms tied together by a common visual thread or somehow fused into one another and their surroundings. Some portrayals are lighter and incorporate abstract geometric stratospheres within the natural landscape, bringing to question the nature of animals and whether or not our perception of them as being so different from us is valid. The larger, earlier works are tense, forcing the viewer to consider where or how the human exists within this scene and using the absence of a human subject to question whether or not human presence would have a positive or negative effect.

The Rooftop

Recognized by the New York Times, Charleston’s most iconic rooftop restaurant and bar offers panoramic views of the Holy City skyline and legendary harbor.

Current Art Exhibit

The Vendue’s newest art exhibit, Fortunate, features thirty works of art, each accompanied by the fortunes used to inspire them. This exhibit will help raise funds for local non-profit, I Heart Hungry Kids, and their mission of kids helping kids fight hunger.
