William Bailey's latest exhibition at Betty Cuningham Gallery is the third for this veteran artist at Betty Cuningham Gallery. Bailey is known particularly for his stil-life and figure paintings. Both the still-life & figure paintings are derived from his imagination, adjusting the light source and relative scale of each object as he paints. The end result is a stillness in the objects and the figures painted from Bailey’s imagination have a strange, dreamlike presence.
