William Bailey is best known for his paintings that hover between the abstract and the hyperrealistic. Bailey often depicts assorted bowls, vases, cups, and other vessels, as well as nude and clothed women. Though these works are perfectly textured, detailed, colored, and designed, he does not create these subjects from reality, but rather from memory and the imagination.
