the art of Taurus Burns

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.
