Bill Woolf (Imagined Memory / Outsider Fair 2004)
           

           

           

           

           

This septuagenarian artist explores our social, cultural, and historical states through his unique style of painting. Woolfıs work conveys a narrative or imagined scene, often using a flat perspective allowing many layers of an idea to be expressed at once. The detail in his work is impressive. He uses what I call the "show every blade of grass technique" which makes his work all the more amazing, and fits within the grand folk tradition of memory painting. Not surprisingly, some of his larger works take more than a year to complete.
