Rodney Taylor


Rodney Taylor

Buffalo artist Rodney Taylor's most recent painted works on paper combine fiercely energetic rendering with blunt symbols and icons in a hybrid that addresses itself to the emotional state of the union circa 2008. Using a tree as the central image throughout the series, Taylor takes the icon through successive degrees of devastation and dissolution. From a sick bed, to sprouting, blood red, from the top of the Capital Dome, through floods and fire and ultimate annihilation, Taylor presents an arc of potential self-destruction that is both a narrative omen and emotional rollercoaster.
