Sculptor and self-proclaimed “shop-rat” Taylor Pilote’s work is a exploration of what it means to be a young, reckless male navigating through contemporary culture with high art interests and a low brow upbringing, all under a smooth, meticulously polished exterior. After receiving his MFA from the University of South Florida Pilote has worked and exhibited throughout the U.S., Canada and Paris. Employing the visual language of automotive exteriors he attempts to conjure a variety of reactions to his materials and subject matter simultaneously as difficult or farcical issues are presented in a slick, seductive manner.
Broward College’s North Campus expands upon its inaugural 2012 / 2013 Artist Talk series with a new line-up of some of South Florida’s most groundbreaking, local and internationally acclaimed artists visual artists. Each of the up and coming and internationally renowned artists involved will present the diverse concepts and aesthetics within their respective bodies of work and direct a hands-on workshop the following night to further allow the public to experience and learn from their artistic processes.
