Biography from Leslie Levy Fine Art, Inc.:
ARTIST'S STATEMENT
My pictures (and they are pictures, not "works" or "pieces") do not spring from some wordy philosophy or theory. Simply put, they are simple. With only one exception, all of them come from times and places of complete quiet; no humans exist, except as unseen ideas or shadows. Their presence is there; they're either about to appear or have just left or are just out of sight enough so as to not "exist." Beyond this point I think very little about my work. I guess it's just intuitive. To paraphrase Edward Hopper, "if you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint it."

About William Barnes...Bill Barnes attended the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Iowa where his interest was Art History. Bill has been featured in the Iowa Artists Exhibition at the Des Moines Art Center and his work is included in the collections of Hallmark Cards Inc., U.S. West Communications, The National Bank of Waterloo and Ernst & Young.
