Although his still lifes, landscapes, and figure paintings seem to have been painted from life, William Bailey explains: “The paintings I do are not from life—they’re made up, but they’re made up from real situations. Real objects. . . . So all these things come from my memory” Best known for his still lifes, like Soldier (2011), Bailey focuses on formal relationships, refinement of surface and harmony of color.
