Area Arts presents the art of Bernie Taupin

Reflections

“Fifty years. Fifty years of creativity. Fifty years of passion. Fifty years of friendship.”

Fifty years

As Elton embarks on his final world tour, I’ve been presented with many opportunities to reflect on our musical career. We celebrated our creative partnership at a gala in Los Angeles in 2017, I joined him for his last weekend during his final Las Vegas performances, we’ve co-hosted a YouTube contest where other artists reinterpreted our songs visually, we were honored with a CBS Grammy Salutes presentation, and we both executive produced two new albums with covers of some of our biggest hits sung by other artists.

But how do I feel about our biggest hits? How do I interpret them as I reflect upon the last 50 years of my professional life? How would I translate them…visually?

I spend most of my free time creating visual art now, so I decided to create a body of work in honor of my other body of work, just this once.

Fans share often that my lyrics and Elton’s melodies have shaped and changed their lives in dramatic, everlasting ways. How can I possibly express my gratitude to the millions of fans who have impacted my life? These especially crafted works of art are my best effort, and I am so pleased to share this very personal art with you.

Vaya con Dios,
Bernie Taupin

“Reflections: The Art of Bernie Taupin” features a collection of original works and hand-signed limited editions of only 50 prints created as a tribute to his partnership of 50 years with Elton John. The subject matter is inspired by hit songs the two created together.

The exhibit debuts in Napa as Elton John performs his final world tour, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.” And the buzz worthy biographical film on the life of Elton John “Rocketman,” is scheduled to be released in May.

All of the limited editions are hand signed by Bernie Taupin
