Shows & Exhibition
It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to the works of Bill Schwarz.
"Art helps me find the balance to what I was trained to do, what I want to do and what I see around me. As a lawyer, I am trained to look at facts, to study detail to find the core of an issue. Often in my practice, what may appear simple may be infinitely more complex. With my art, I want to do the opposite. The world around me - landscape, architecture, people - is a complexity of planes, texture and subtlety of colour. I want to make this intricacy simple. I feel that my art is a quest to find a balance between the detail I am trained to find and the simplicity I want to achieve. I have a personal and abiding interes t in the urban landscape. This means architecture of all sorts, from buildings and boats to vehicles or machinery. I am fascinated by the effect that nature has on this architecture. . . weathering it or breaking it down to give it a unique character. I am captivated by the idea that when architecture is new it looks essentially thesame as any other architecture in the same category . . . it is time that gives it its unique quality and characteristics.
