Bill Saylor has been a significant presence in New York’s contemporary painting scene since the late 1990s. His work consistently merges genres and refuses to align with recognizable trends. Sourcing material from both his imagination and the world around him, Saylor twists familiar symbols from pop culture and American history into an abstract visual language to create work that is at once humorous and profound.
Recent shows include solo exhibitions at Magenta Plains (NYC), Peter Makebish (NYC), Leo Koenig (NYC), The Journal (Brooklyn) and Loyal Gallery (Stockholm); and he has been included in group shows at Ceysson Benetiere (Luxembourg), The Brant Foundation (Greenwich, CT), Mier Gallery (Los Angeles), The Yerba Buena Art Center (San Francisco) and Hiromi Yoshi Gallery (Tokyo).
