William Whitaker /American Figurative painter

William Whitaker born in 1943, he is an american figurative painter based in Utah.

William Whitaker is characterized by his interest in the mystery and sensitivity of female subjects.The paintings of this artist reflect an impressive realism to the extent that you do not know if what you see is a photograph or a painting.

“Most viewers like pictures to mean something, to tell a little story.   Not me.  The only thing I’m interested in is paint and what can be done with paint.   Working with this figure arrangement, it occurred to me to play a little game with the primary colors, blue, red and yellow.  It’s not readily apparent in this image, but the skin of the figure on the left is influenced by blue, the figure in the middle by red, and the figure on the right by gold tones”.
