Henry Taylor: B Side Solo Edition (The 4th)
Skateboard Edition featuring artwork by Henry Taylor.
Produced on the occasion of Henry Taylor: B Side, MOCA Los Angeles, November 6, 2022 – April 30, 2023.
The 4th, is released as a solo deck, in an edition size of 100. Based on a 2012 13-feet tall piece composed of two stacked panels. As Tatiana Istomina describes the work, ‘The upper [panel] shows the monumental form of a black woman in a white T-shirt; she holds what looks like a potato chip in one manicured hand and a barbecue fork in the other... Like many of Taylor’s best paintings, the work transcends the particular circumstances of the depicted event, transforming it into a metaphorical statement of epic proportions... Although her appearance is firmly rooted in the everyday life of contemporary America, the scale, posture, and gravity of the figure connects her to timeless icons of fertility and power, from Paleolithic Venus figurines to traditional African sculpture and early Renaissance Madonnas.'
