Jeanine Taylor Folk Art is honored to announce the online opening reception of a show decades in the making. Cosmic Traveler – A Kurt Zimmerman Retrospective will showcase works from the late visionary abstract expressionist painter from Cocoa Beach, Florida. His work teems with galvanized hues, energetic brushstrokes and a mysterious air of otherworldly knowledge.
An emigrant of Germany, Zimmerman grew up in New York State and enlisted in the army after high school. He performed bombing missions over his homeland during World War II that deeply affected his emotional health. He returned to the U.S. and was hired to work on the Apollo project for General Electric. More stress and depression lead him to quit his job and turn to art for therapy.
“My work is a direct expression of entities in contact with me from different dimensions. By bringing them into this world through my art, I hope to make viewers aware of the greater dimensionality of life—a view very different from the normal day to day reality we perceive.”

In an effort to stay connected and engaged with our community, we have created specific content in lieu of a grand opening reception. Celeste Danforth, Kurt's step-daughter and Cosmic Traveler point person, was kind enough to film a few thoughts on her father's life and art. Please take a moment to watch the video and learn more about Kurt.
