Tanka Red Boat by Bryan Mark Taylor
Oil on Panel
11 x 14 in.
Having traveled around the world to paint what he calls “Nature’s everyday miracles,” Taylor saw this trip to China as a significant opportunity. “As someone who is both a student of tradition and who embraces technology, I found myself drawn to China and the Tanka in particular. I wanted to show the juxtaposition of old and new.” Taylor is widely considered among today’s leading landscape painters. A long-time teacher and lecturer at the Academy of Art University (San Francisco), he has taught courses at Pixar and has been a featured speaker for the Plein Air and CTNX conventions. Taylor’s works have won numerous awards and been celebrated in Fine Art Connoisseur, Plein Air, Southwest, and American Art Collector magazines. Much like Turner in his time, Taylor is considered an innovator rooted in tradition.
