Catalogue Note

“For Taylor, though, portraiture is much more than an artistic convention of a realistic painter; the variety that he produces within the genre reshapes what might be considered a conventional language into a flexible vehicle for a much larger goal, which is to produce a multivalent but also highly specific view of contemporary life as seen through the eyes of an African American artist at the beginning of the twenty-first century.” Victoria L. Valentine, “Los Angeles Artist Henry Taylor Made a Series of Paintings as He Traveled the Globe, the New Works are Now on View in Tokyo” Culture Type, March 26, 2018
