"Billy Sullivan: 2000"
2000-03-03 until 2000-04-03
Rebecca Ibel Gallery
Columbus, OH, USA United States of America

Billy Sullivan: 2000, an exhibition featuring new paintings, pastels and drawings of portraits and still lifes. Sullivan views his work as a diary, describing the people and objects around him. The world he records in pastels, oils and inks is a glamorous one of interesting men and women and beautiful settings. His still lifes capture the lushness and inherent beauty of a vase of sunflowers on a windowsill overlooking Long Island Sound or a plate of fish and mussels on a checkered tablecloth. The portraits, in their tenderness and spontaneity offer an intimacy, as if we belong, are part of the moment.

Sullivan is one of a select group of artists whose portraits are considered more than accurate likenesses of the sitter; they transcend beyond to a work of art. David Rimanelli in his Top Ten of the Nineties, Art Forum, December '99, describes Billy Sullivan as a contemporary artist in whose work we see the distant reflection of Ingres's enterprise, one that admits both frank idealization and more psychologically ambiguous homage.

Billy Sullivan has been exhibiting with the Columbus gallery since 1994. Based in New York, Sullivan has had recent exhibitions in New York, Cologne, Houston, Los Angeles and Paris. A catalogue of the exhibition, with a text by Linda Yablonsky, is available.
