Taylor McKimens paints the mundane in a profound way. His scenes feature the characters and artifacts of his youth in Winterhaven, California. Finding inspiration in college Taylor slowly forged his own unique style, a messy, beautiful vision of everything around him. In this episode we follow Taylor as he takes us on a fishing expedition in Brooklyn, and installs a group show for the inaugural The Hole Gallery show in New York.
"If You’re Accidentally Not included, Don’t Worry About It" curated by Peter Saul @ Zurcher Studio, NYCJuxtapoz // Thursday, April 03, 2014
This show ought to be a good one in NYC, considering the names involved and the curating eye of Peter Saul. Here is the lowdown: Zürcher Studio is pleased to announce "If You’re Accidentally Not included, Don’t Worry About It," a group show curated by Peter Saul. Among the artists who attract the interests of other artists (particularly from the newest generation), Peter Saul is one of the most magnetizing. Bernard and Gwenolee Zürcher proposed to him the idea of a group show based on his own artistic choices.

Taylor McKimens' paintings play like an acid trip through desert country. His figures and environments drip and ooze in electrifying color, hallucinatory visions of decay articulated through a stylized comic book aesthetic. McKimens alternates 'between loose areas of color with atmospheric gesture and dense areas of confident line quality where even the slightest details, a fly on a shoe, a piece of trash in a puddle, are given equal stature on the canvas.'
