Zeek Taylor and the Chimps


Loretta Luckenbill, Watercolor, Zeek Taylor 

I met Zeek when I was jurying an art exhibit in Eureka Springs (a hippiefied sort of resort town in the mountains of NW Arkansas).  Not only is he an imminently kind dude, but I’ve rarely met anyone who can paint in watercolor with such insane, painstaking precision.

What’s up with his chimps?  Well, they’re of that crossover sort of art that could make a huge splash in the contemporary world, or a modest splash across the board.  Zeek?  Hell, he just smiles and paints, content either way–which shows in his work if you know how to look for it.  You should check out his interpretations of iris as well.  Bloody amazing.
