Contemporary abstract expressionist artist Taylor Winn works on large-scale canvas and panel using repurposed acrylic, oil, Venetian plaster and metallic alkyds at his studio on Barton Creek in Austin, Texas.
Montessori and Waldorf educated through grade school, Taylor Winn focused on art at an early age, sold his first paintings at age 17 and received his BA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin.
Winn’s early paintings were analyzed by researchers at Stanford University, Menlo Park and Stony Brook University in published studies (2009, 2011) on fractal analysis authentication of Jackson Pollock’s works. For two consecutive years (2005, 2006), he was the Juror’s Prize recipient of The Austin Contemporary Jones Center Ahead of Their Time exhibition.
Taylor Winn has exhibited regionally and nationally since 2005. His upcoming exhibit, Taylor Winn XL Paintings (November 15, 2013 - February 3, 2014) at the venerable Bass Concert Hall in Austin, Texas, is the artist’s second solo alumni exhibition on the University of Texas campus. The show features new work from Winn's XL series of paintings spanning 10 feet tall to 13 feet wide and brimming with the artist's signature coiling, vine-like calligraphy twining through wonderlands of original color.
