Taft McWhorter Art
Winter Street Studios
I have had the desire to shape and expand myself and the world around me since I was a child; always searching; continuously creating. From building with legos, to forming bands in high school, to founding new businesses in my adult years, my path has always included the pursuit of passion and experiential growth.
Arriving in the art business roughly 14 years ago, I have pursued being a professional artist with abandon, studying with fellow artists and constantly exhibiting my work. With over 100 solo, joint and group exhibits under my belt and over 500 local and national collectors, my sights are set on evolving my career on a national and international basis.
The eclectic variety in my numerous styles is the product of allowing mistakes to be a part of the art making process. I embrace the dichotomy of vision versus freedom; control versus chaos. In the spirit of freedom and chaos, I employ a plethora of textures, colors and mediums while trying not to limit myself to any single style or form.
Franz Kline, Gerhard Richter, Jackson Pollock and David Adickes have been my main artistic influences. My styles encompass abstract, folk and impressionism. My mediums include acrylics, epoxy resin, latex and watercolor.
My artwork is simply an extension of my life and personality. My paintings represent whatever it is I am feeling at the time. One layer at a time, I allow each painting to simply “become”. Through a combination of variety, depth and the pursuit of experiential growth, each piece of art becomes unique in technique, style and emotion.
