         Beginning January 26 through March 25, 2012, Café Arts presents Taylor Randolph Perry: Stenciling Out the Time.  Perry is a Houston-based artist who uses the medium of cut stencils and various paint mediums on sheets of aluminum, slabs of concrete and colored tissue paper.  The artist was in attendance at AMSET’s recent summer family day called Recycled/Reinvented where he worked with children creating cut plastic bottle flowers.  Perry attended the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston on a painting scholarship and now works at the Children’s Museum also in that city.

         Tayloris a computer draftsman by trade and draws his artistic inspiration from the woodcutting and printing of the Germans, Japanese and Latin Americans, as well as from classical art and the masters such as O’Keeffe, Matisse, Goya, and Rivera.  Taylorstates, “Stencil is a form of spray art and part of graffiti art in general.  It also seems that stencil is more able to catch something like the emotional eye of the beholder than most of the other street art is.”
         In the summers of 2006 and 2007, Taylor visited San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  Drawn to the religious retablos, a city filled with cathedrals and beautiful native gardens, he began to perfect his painting on metal techniques. Most recently, trips to Galveston Beach provided inspiration to paint on concrete.
