Since the 1970s, New York artist Billy Sullivan has exhibited both nationally and internationally. His sensual portraits, still lifes and photographs chronicle his journey through the world of art and society. Sullivan renders a candid diary, reveling in the physicality of paint, and in making the mundane extraordinary. These emotional works capture fleeting moments with intense intimacy and nuance that transcend mere documentation of everyday life. In 2006, Sullivan’s third solo exhibition Friends, at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, received critical acclaim. Sullivan’s paintings and slide show were also included in the recent 2006 Whitney Biennial: Day for Night. Sullivan’s work is in The Ellipse Foundation Contemporary Art Collection, Cascais, Portugal, and in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
