Describing his painting practice as "voracious," Henry Taylor populates his work with an enormous diversity of subjects, from the destitute to the dazzlingly successful. Whether through intimate portraits of family and friends, or politically-inflected group scenes that splice together different geographies and histories, Taylor's aim is to honestly portray the reality of Black experience and the often-iniquitous workings of American life. The work presented at the Venice Biennale gives a small sample of Taylor's expansive purview.
