Bill Sullivan

American (1942)

About the artist:

A contemporary American painter and printmaker of landscapes, Bill Sullivan received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. Since that time his art has been the subject of numerous shows both nationally and internationally. He has had over fifteen one man exhibitions in New York City, where he has resided for much of his career. The Albany Institute of Art is planning a major retrospective of Sullivan's art in the near future. Today the art of Bill Sullivan is housed in such major public collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Cleveland Museum, the Art Institute of Albany and the Museum of the City of New York. One interesting aspect of Sullivan's art is his lifelong study of the great 19th century landscape painter, Frederick Edwin Church. In his large canvases Church explored the spiritual forces of nature. Through his contemporary eyes, Sullivan pursues a similar path. His study of Church has taken him to many places where this master painted -- Colombia, Ecuador, the Hudson River Valley and elsewhere in the United States. Sullivan has also co-authored a book on Church's travels through South America. In the compelling art of Bill Sullivan, landscape becomes a metaphor for universal issues. On his work he has written, "The attitude I wish to convey is one of hopeful seduction; a beauty of doubt that becomes a hypnotic daydream while asking disturbing questions. ... Our culture prefers the charms of Disneyland to the consideration of mortality inherent in a great waterfall or the vision of immortality in its rainbow."
