Taylor Kline at Prøve Gallery in Duluth

Taylor Kline's work was recently featured at Goulash, a show of work by graduating UMD art students. His work incorporates some vinyl cut imagery, layered over a striking background developed by slicing skateboards, revealing a cross-section of brightly dyed plywood. Pretty sweet.

Each of his pieces depicts a different place that has been important to the development of skate culture.

Technique tip: he embedded the vinyl in thick clear acrylic medium which made the whole piece look very nicely finished.
