Additional Product InformationRobert Taylor is a self-taught Oklahoma artist of Native American descent whose symbolic paintings challenge the notion that Indian art should adhere to any one style. His work is best known for his usage of iconic symbols and manipulation of proportion seen often in the hands and feet. Taylor used universal symbols in his paintings that express similar thoughts from various religious traditions. He also intentionally exaggerates the proportions of hands and feet in his paintings of turn-of-the-century Indians. The enlarged hands symbolize dexterous minds as well as the elevation of the human species among all others. Enlarged feet symbolize that we are bound to the earth physically while our dreams and aspirations are spiritual. He works primarily with watercolors, acrylics, pen and ink, and prints. .
ROBERT'S WORK CAN BE SEEN AT KOCH GALLERY IN FREDERICKSBURG TEXAS.
