Henry Taylor

Published by MoMA PS1
Text by Laura Hoptman, Naima Keith. Interview by Peter Eleey.

"Peanuts" (2007) is reproduced from <I>Henry Taylor</I>.Los Angeles-based artist Henry Taylor (born 1958) applies his brush both to canvas and to unconventional materials--suitcases, crates, cereal boxes, cigarette packs--using everyone and everything around him as source material. While Taylor drew and painted in his youth, he studied art formally only later in life, attending the California Institute of the Arts after working for ten years as a psychiatric nurse at a state hospital. This experience sharpened his interest in, and appreciation for, individuals from all economic and social backgrounds, and encouraged a passion to create an intensely empathetic style of portraiture. Published on the occasion of Taylor’s 2012 exhibition at MoMA PS1, where the artist established his New York studio for the duration of the show, the publication explores Taylor’s ambitious and deeply humanistic project to present a worldview defined by the people--extraordinary and ordinary--with whom we live.

BACK IN STOCK! Henry Taylor

BACK IN STOCK! Henry TaylorWe are delighted to have Henry Taylor back in stock. Born in 1958, this Los Angeles painter's inspiration has always come from inside. He entered the art world as an adult—first studying journalism and linguistics, then working for a decade as a psychiatric nurse before committing to CalArts. In conversation with MoMA PS1 curator Peter Eely, he is quoted, "I'm always looking, and I have peers whose work I check out. I want to see a lot. But a lot of contemporary stuff doesn’t move me like the way Picasso draws eyes. He’s probably the guy I look at the most." If only all artists were so direct. Featured image is "See Alice Jump" (2011). continue to blog

Henry Taylor

Henry TaylorIn her catalogue essay for Henry Taylor, Studio Museum in Harlem assistant curator Naima Keith writes, "When asked about the term outsider artist for an article published on the occasion of his midcareer survey at MoMA PS1 in 2012, Henry Taylor responded: 'Motherfuck… I say to hell with all that shit. Some Rauschenberg shit can look like outsider shit and vice versa. Fuck yeah, man.' One is tempted to regard the dismissal as tongue-in-cheek, however, especially since critics have been invoking outsider art in their discussions of Taylor’s work since his solo New York gallery debut in 2005. Reviewing his show at Daniel Reich Gallery in 2005, Roberta Smith observed, 'His work is implicitly political, explicitly painterly and borders on several not always related territories: early Pop Art, outsider art figuration and quasi-academic realism, with some rough-edged collage thrown in for good measure.' In 2009 Christopher Knight wrote, 'Horace Pippin and Jean-Michel Basquiat are stylistically evoked in works that cross outsider art and graffiti.' Clearly these critics were responding to Taylor’s vibrant compositions, in which memories and observations relating to African American life merge. In these works, landscapes are rendered as dense color fields, produced by building up layers of acrylic, and the figures are at times almost cartoonish, missing limbs or faces or appearing with key areas evocatively unfinished." Untitled (Self-Portrait) (2009) is reproduced from Henry Taylor. continue to blog
