Bill Woolf - Lake Shore Drive Series









Bill Woolf's work conveys a narrative or imagined scene, often using a flat perspective that allows many layers of an idea to be expressed at once-in the L.S.D. series, temporal and physical elements exist simultaneously. Using details recalling classic folk artists like Grandma Moses or Ralph Fasanella, his work fits into the larger tradition of memory painting. Other paintings in the show explore socio-cultural, historical, and environmental issues, such as the Civil War, various Balkan blood feud conflicts, and man's intruding on nature.
