Formation Farming No. 1
In this work, the artist explores the spontaneous nature of working with crayons on paper. He crafts rough gradations, divisions and repeated units within this composition, but it has all been drawn in a childlike hand.
Taylor Anton White explores abstraction, tone, content, and mark-making in his art while challenging the viewer to identify his unconventional materials and art-making methods.
Taylor Anton White’s art consistently defies categorization. The artist juxtaposes text, found objects, and images of houses, cars, landscapes, and inanimate objects—often all within a single artwork. He utilizes a vast spectrum of media in his practice, ranging from spiral bindings, spray paint, airbrush, plasticized textiles, and charcoal, which lends a three-dimensionality to this work. Known for a multidisciplinary art practice used to explore abstraction, tone, content and mark-making, White challenges the viewer to identify his radically unconventional materials and art-making methods.
Taylor Anton White has mounted recent solo exhibitions at Pulpo Gallery in Murnau, Germany (2022); Roberts Projects in Los Angeles, CA (2021); MARQUEE PROJECTS in Bellport, NY (2021); and Monica King Contemporary in New York, NY (2020).
He has been included in group exhibitions at High Noon Gallery in New York, NY (2022); Galeria Fan Reus in Mallorca, Spain (2021); Everyday Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium (2021); and Newchild Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium (2021), among others.
His work has been featured in periodicals such as Artnet.com, Whitehot Magazine, New American Paintings, Art & Objects, Burnaway Magazine, and others. He was awarded the Cycamore Artist Residency, Brooklyn, NY, in 2018 and the Espositivo 7B Residency, Madrid, Spain, in 2017.
