Artist's Statement

The continuous squiggle line of acrylic paint on canvas does not follow any structure. The line goes where it wants to. It begins in one area of the canvas and ends in another area. Images, different shapes, and even objects suddenly appear as the squiggle line is created. A feeling of freedom, focus, and escape from reality are felt during this process. The line has also become a representation one's life and the quick unexpected turns that it can make. This is a form of the artist's relaxation and meditation in his own life. What started as just an everyday notebook doodle turns into a sense of freedom and escape from reality.

Bio/Resume

William moved from Merrimack, NH to NYC in 1998. He began his work in a literature class at college. With just a pen and a notebook listening to lectures, out of boredom he would fill thousands of pages with his squiggle line over many classes. He attended college at The School of Visual Arts, NYC, in 2000 studying graphic design and fine art. In a class Originality, which encouraged the student to work on and create new images, his designs became alive beyond the notebook and created them with pen on drawing paper, filling an entire page. He moved on to acrylic and 3-D fabric paint on canvas. He squiggles on many items, pillows, T-shirts, lampshades, cocktail glasses, vases, the exterior of his car, and interior walls of apartments. He now works out of his studio in Astoria Queens and continues to work on this series and also designs window displays at a high-end luxury suiting company in NYC.
