Famed Lyricist and Artist Bernie Taupin Creates Rhythms on Canvas in a Showing of Extraordinary Artwork in Austin, Texas, August 2-25, 2012

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

When Austin catches the first glimpse of legendary songwriter?s Bernie Taupin?s ?Beyond Words? art show this August at the Russell Collection Art Gallery, they will feel all the same emotion as they do when listening to one of Elton John?s songs. Taupin?s emotional connection with the canvas conjures as much passion as the words he?s written for the music industry?s most iconic singers.

Bernie Taupin and Elton John is a forty-year collaboration that continues and unlike any other the music world has ever seen.

According to Elton John, ?Without Bernie, basically, there wouldn?t have been an Elton John. I mean, without that stroke of good fortune and kismet as it were, Elton John probably wouldn?t have happened. I?m just a purveyor of Bernie?s feelings, Bernie?s thoughts.?

The Russell Collection is deeply honored to present an extraordinary collection of artwork created by Taupin, whose creative passions have allowed him to equally master yet another form of artistic expression - one with brushes and paints; the one that creates emotive canvases. His contemporary works of art dually speak to one's intellect and one's emotions and are rich in color and expression.

Beginning on Thursday, August 2, 2012, the public will be able to preview the artwork available for purchase at the Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery on 6th Street. The show will run from August 2 through August 25, with special appearances by Bernie Taupin on Friday, August 24 from 6-8 pm and Saturday, August 25 from 6-8 pm.

Taupin describes his art: ?Canvas to me is simply the visual extension of what I have spent my life creating through words. The imagination, in my estimation, is the most powerful tool the artist possesses enabling us to conjure up beautiful distraction for the ears and eyes.
I have no formula except that which comes from what I dream, feel and see. To me colors are like words?they express emotions?likewise texture and mediums display an abundance of moods.?

For years Taupin has extended his art beyond his lyrics and onto the canvas. Through painting, he has expanded his artistic horizons into frontiers where words have given way to his broad palette of color, where timing and cadence once served, now texture and the gesture of his brush bring his vision into a new dimension.
