Taron always gives you more than you would expect of 3D art. Interviewed at the Gnomon Gallery in Hollywood.

Every once in a while you get to meet someone whose capabilities seem to exceed expectations. Taron is one of those artists whose ability and intellect shows through in his work. Whether on canvas using Art Rage, inside an intricate fairy tale like 3D scene, or through his music, Taron finds an exploration that exudes an exotic yet familiar quality. A lot of artists get so caught up in the execution of technique that they lose that fun exploratory quality in their art. To be free minded and not bogged down by the stereotypes of what a CG artist is.
The latest show at the Gnomon Gallery showcased a collection of Taron’s most popular work. One of the added bonuses of coming to the show was getting to see samples from his sketchbook and large prints of his older CG work. One of the pieces that stands out the most includes the storytelling puppet vampire Vladmir Logheadovic. Vladmir’s horrific story of the cure for allergies has a playfulness to it that exemplifies Taron’s humor.
Some pieces have a deeper moral story behind them. In “LA Augmentation” Taron deftly creates a statement about the artificial pursuit of beauty. The woman featured in this picture dreams of being someone beautiful. A closer look reveals that the achievement of that look leaves deep scars, not just in the skin but on ones own psyche.
Actually seeing Taron’s work printed on canvas and in 3D Rabbitholes was a great experience for us at CG Channel. The Art of Taron can be seen at the Gnomon Gallery at the intersection of Santa Monica Blvd and North Cahuenga Blvd in Los Angeles, California.
