The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County Presents:
“Evolution of an Artist”
Featuring: Bernie Taupin
Internationally recognized for his 50 year partnership with Sir Elton John and so many other music projects; Bernie Taupin has touched our lives with his lyrics and art. He will discuss a career of accomplishments and growth as an artist.
As a British native living in New York in the 1990’s, American culture and the modernist art of the 1960s and 70s consumed Taupin, and his connections to being “American” and to the “Americana” style are palpable in his work. His aesthetic might be akin to that of a renegade cowboy, complete with torn vintage comics, Polaroid photographs, found wood panels, scorched canvases and other timeworn ephemera. Although the materials recall an earlier America, the natures of his slyly sardonic compositions investigate the contemporary social climate.
VIP Reception: 10:30 a.m.
Event Chair: Suzanne Niedland
Special thanks to Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary, An International Fair Presented by Art Miami and the Perry J. Cohen Foundation.
