Bill Dunlap [b.1966] is a self-taught painter, sculptor, and multimedia artist whose works stand in direct discourse with old masters such as Rembrandt and Goya. Blurring the line between abstraction and figuration, Bill engages with a wide array of subject matter. From figures and landscapes to politically charged paintings that address sensitive issues such as police brutality, racial inequality, and domestic terrorism in the United States, Bill’s oeuvre makes him a unique participant in the ongoing dialogue between art history’s past and contemporary art history in the making. He selects his pallet depending on the subject matter of the work. Bill restricts himself to hues of black and white for his politically charged works, while employing brighter, more vivid colors for his playful nudes and vibrant landscapes. In his more recent bodies of work, “A Cruel Summer” and “Domination,” Bill fearlessly explores the seedy underbelly of contemporary American culture and society, forcing the viewer to confront these politically and sexually charged images head on.
