The parts, processes and functions of future science have been themes of my work since the 1970’s. A fascination with the mechanical complexity, visual abstractions of scientific apparatus is within my grasp to simulate. Personal and visual expression have been and open door to the fascinating world of theoretical implications of the most perplexing questions. Plato and Pythagoras among many others provided sound arguments to these questions, but theoretical physics and ontology are providing proof for these ideologies. My work continues to observe and make commentary about this sphere and its implications for our world.--Michael Estes Taylor, 2015
Painter Gary Morse creates acrylic paintings of the surreal. Morse does a quick sketch of a figure, and places it on a canvas. Then he paints the figure and let's it tell its own story. A collection of Morse's works from 2011 is hung in the Ohringer Gallery.
