Jeremy Taylor, PASC
Detroit Summertime House Party
A brightly colored energetic drawing in marker and pen, featuring thick graphic lines in constructing colors depicting a boombox, hand holding a microphone in a rock and roll hand gesture, a fist with pinky and pointer fingers raised, and a small house. The words from top to bottom, left to right on this piece read Detroit, Glow, rap, hip hop, Summertime, House Party.
Jeremy is a Westland based artist working out of the PASC Westland Studio. His artwork has a graphic and graffiti like quality to it. He renders his pieces largely in pencil and marker creating images that reference 1980’s NY subway graffiti, or psychedelic sign painting. Each piece features contrasting colored text and imagery placed side by side in compressed compositions, as if the artist Stuart Davis were drawing hidden picture puzzles for Highlights for Children Magazine. Jeremy has exhibited at The Scarab Club, Detroit (2021), Swords Into Plowshares Gallery, Detroit (2022), and PASC at the Belt Gallery (2023).
PASC was launched in January 2021 as the first progressive art and design studio, and exhibition program, in Detroit and Wayne County, dedicated to supporting artists with developmental disabilities and mental health differences to advance independent artistic practices and build individual career paths in the art and design fields. PASC is a program of Services to Enhance Potential (STEP)
