Pandemic Gallery • 37 Broadway • Brooklyn, NY October 16, 2010 - November 6, 2010
Raised by squirrels in a musty old barn located deep in the woods of upstate NY, Dan taylor's work is heavily influenced by the anatomical forms of the animal kingdom. In his drawings, sculptures, and mixed media works, Taylor treats organs and musculoskeletal structures as unique environments, which may be fused with other natural forms, as well as occasional unexpected consumerist elements. His taxidermy creations with handmade construction and framing give off a twisted sense of the macabre, and warps your sense of perception. Some day, the artist's own remains will be stuffed and put on display to scare children.
Pandemic Gallery is an artist-run space dedicated to showing art from up-and-coming, unknown, and well-established talent alike. Embracing (but not confined to) urban street work, we are attracted to artists who think outside the confines of conventional normalcy -- artists whose fresh concepts and unique vision can inspire a broad audience. Media exhibited at Pandemic include painting, drawing, sculpture, block prints, stencil, and silkscreen.
