Bill Sullivan

Bill Sullivan is a painter who “stretches the limits.” In describing his style, he quotes a passage from a prose poem ” The Recital” by John Asherey:

“We are trying with mortal hands to paint a landscape which would be a faithful reproduction of the exquisite and terrible scene which stretches around us.”

Sullivan is one of a modern breed of artists whose work talks to us as well. Sullivan’s statements are personal, aesthetic, issue-oriented, and environmental. These beautiful prints show that he is making them with a sense of style and purpose.

Sullivan says that he decided a long time ago that he didn’t want people to “just walk by” his paintings. “I want something that’s going to make people stop and look,” he says. “Today, my works don’t fit into the safer aspects of landscape. Most landscape work today is passive,” He adds,  unnecessarily: “My work isn’t terribly passive.”
