The unique style of William De Bilzan’s paintings relies heavily on this thoughtful compositions and masterful use of … color. The compositions themselves, on their literal surface, are at first complex given the wide variety of rich textures. However, the juxtaposition of simplest figurative
elements serves to provide the viewer with an effortless, yet refined resolution. The straightforwardness used by DeBilzan in his compositions is even more apparent in the his choice of color. His palette varies in its mood from warm, subtle, distinctions to cool, higher contrast shades reminiscent of the Caribbean. The reds, yellows, greens and blues communicate a sense of innocence in purity while remaining bold and unashamed.
The most distinguishing feature of DeBilzan’s work is his figures. They stand tall and thin and speak to the viewer with a relief that is in stark contrast to their surrounding textures. Their presence in his paintings suggests the idea that life is far simpler than we make it. Alone or in groups, the anonymous individuals communicate a sense of love, belonging, or longing to belong.
