William Bailey, until March 27, Betty Cuningham Gallery, New York

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.

Modigliani reloaded; with touch of Valloton; but very silent...
