Kevin Earl Taylor paints moments of encounter, often pairing animals and occasionally people in contemplative moments. The subjects face off with an air of mystery, as they seem to be sorting out their place in the natural world and relationships to each other. These vignettes are subtle, yet suggest commentaries on a disappearing world. They prompt the viewer’s curiosity and, at the deepest level, evoke consideration of what it is to be conscious, to be human, and perhaps to be nearing extinction. As a grouping, the canvases work to redeem the value of vanishing time.
