About the Work
Bill Saylor navigates between the abstract and figurative through gestural brushwork delivered with the immediacy of a street-tag, action painting and collage. The centered composition of REPTAR acts as a contemporary simulacrum of paleolithic cave drawings: a frenetic drawing of some unknown mystical creature actualized with what could be earth’s natural pigments.
Bill Saylor presented new works in a solo exhibition with Makebish (New York) in 2015 and at NADA New York in 2014. Other solo shows include Leo Koenig Inc. (New York), The Journal Gallery (Brooklyn), and Loyal Gallery (Stockholm), as well a two person show with Josh Smith at Hiromi Yoshii Gallery (Tokyo). Saylor has participated in group exhibitions at Venus Over Manhattan (New York), Martos Gallery (Los Angeles), Angell Gallery (Toronto), Anonymous Gallery (Mexico City), and Asbaek Gallery (Copenhagen). In 2010, Bill Saylor collaborated on the zine Ho Bags with Harmony Korine, which was published by The Journal Gallery and released at NADA Miami. That year he was also an artist in residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. In 2008, he curated Faxination at Loyal Gallery (Stockholm), which included work by Jeff Elrod, Nicole Eisenman, and Joe Bradley. Bill Saylor currently lives and works between Brooklyn, NY and Upper Black Eddy, PA.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
