The paintings of Los Angeles-based artist Johnny Taylor explore the visual cacophony we encounter every day without taking the time to really observe. Working in acrylic, marker, screen print, and spray paint on canvas or wood, Taylor finds inspiration in the visual detritus of the urban landscape: graffiti, murals, hand-painted signs, graphic design, vintage advertising, store displays, and package design. The resulting works call to mind Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Stuart Davis, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat and the regional arts of the American South. “I paint what I see,” the artist has said. “My practice of applying layer upon layer and the subsequent masking and tearing away of those layers to reveal many previous layers is informed by the abandoned billboards peeling layers, revealing bits of images that came before, scraps of its history visible all at once.”
