JANET TAYLOR PICKETT

PRIDE AND INSOUCIANCE

February – April 2024

In Pride and Insouciance, Janet Taylor Pickett’s works serve as a powerful assertion of self-worth and cultural confidence. Resilience and beauty reach a pinnacle in Taylor Pickett’s luminous portraitures. Insouciance mingled with pride, carefree nonchalance balanced by a deliberate indifference to societal expectations, the figures are filled with expectancy and resolve, and embody a continuous longing for social, sexual, and spiritual freedom that is both personal and universal.  Pride and Insouciance is a visual manifesto that encourages a profound exploration of the multifaceted nature of Black experiences. The intentional merging of the traditional and the contemporary speaks to the evolving cultural identity, inviting viewers to acknowledge the richness and complexity inherent in celebrating Blackness.
