Honor Titus
For the 2021 edition of Frieze London, Timothy Taylor will present a solo exhibition of nine paintings by American artist Honor Titus (b. 1989, Brooklyn, NY). This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at an art fair, following his critically acclaimed inaugural solo exhibition at Timothy Taylor New York in January 2021.

These works depict figures engaged in ritualized movement. Titus tenderly captures the visual language of leisure and sport, which he considers a close relative of more sacred forms of choreography. Our eyes are drawn to the muscles in a diver’s back or the intimate posture of a jockey. We meet the gaze of a woman descending subway stairs at dusk, evoking a sense of stillness and promise with intense concentration.

Employing flat planes of rich colour, Titus’s work recalls the French nineteenth-century group Les Nabis and the Chicago Imagists, as well as the Eastern Seaboard pastoralia of Fairfield Porter. Blending history with dreamscape, the paintings reveal a fantastical early-20th-century world in a visual style uniquely Titus’s own.
