Taurus Burns is a ninja of a painter; quietly slaying canvases all day with efficiency and style. I had the good fortune of meeting Burns years ago in his studio at 555. His paintings have a studied color and light while maintaining a certain fluidity and ease.
Some of his work feels like perfectly rendered snapshots of Detroit, including a series of over 200 such cityscapes. Other pieces have more apparent layers of symbols and parables which he rewrites with compassion and sharp wit.
