Shadow Ballers
Magenta Plains NYC

February 19–March 19 2017

Magenta Plains is pleased to announce Shadow Ballers, a solo exhibition of oil paintings, drawings and sculptures by Bill Saylor. A key figure amid the vibrant Brooklyn painting scene that emerged in the early 2000s and includes artists such as Joe Bradley, Chris Martin, Katherine Bernhardt, Michael Williams, Anke Weyer, and Josh Smith, Saylor’s work is distinguished by his merging of gestural abstraction with a comprehensive personal iconography, revealing an anthropogenic concern and interest in natural history, weather patterns, and marine biology.
