Dan Taylor: "Notes from the Inside"
Pandemic Gallery, Williamsburg
October 17, 2010 - November 6, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 16, from 7-11pm
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 (for example, mylar balloons, luxury handbags, gold leafing or toy soldiers). Some day, the artist's own remains will be stuffed and put on display to scare children. The artist maintains a website, Mammal Soap.
On Saturday, October 16th, from 7pm to 11pm, Pandemic will host the "Notes from the Inside" opening reception, sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon. "Notes from the Inside" will then run through November 6th.
Established in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2009, Pandemic is an artist-run space dedicated to showing work from up-and-coming, unknown, and well-established talent alike. Embracing (but not confined to) urban street art, Pandemic is attracted to artists who think outside the confines of conventional normalcy -- artists whose fresh concepts and unique visions inspire a broad audience. Pandemic is open Tuesday-Friday from 11am to 6pm and Saturday-Sunday from 12pm to 7pm; the gallery is accessible via the L and J subways and the Q59 bus.[/img]
