Taylor McKimens - Stoic Youth

Stoic Youth is a catalog for painter Taylor McKimens' exhibition at The Hole NYC - October, 2015.

In this tightly conceived exhibition, over twenty new paintings explore the same subject—two people’s heads—inspired by two Greek sculptures from the Metropolitan Museum. These androgynous and perplexingly blank heads are the common denominator in a diverse show where McKimens experiments boldly with formal painting aspects like color, line, volume and figure-ground relationships. Employing his traditional painting and drawing talents, and pushing past their limitations, the artist fixes his subject matter so he can experiment within these restrictions to innovate. The result is a very atypical figurative painting show that looks at what the concerns of figurative art might be in 2015.
