Bio:

William Stanisich searches for the spiritual essence of light and the mysteries surrounding it. Whether the light is emanating from a speeding streetcar at dusk (Night Vision), pointing laser shards through a tangle of trees in San Francisco’s Presidio (Land’s End), or blanketing an undisturbed Greek island (Milos), Stanisich remains in hot pursuit.


In Stanisich's Milos series,, which focuses on the artist’s beloved Greek island, we see blinding light penetrating deep waters, unmoving ancient stones eternally pummeled by crashing, glittering ocean waves, and cool stone caves draped with shadow.


The paintings are often executed on a scale not normally associated with watercolor, and they are built up laboriously through long investments of time. Expressive, complex, and raw, they retain an undeniable tranquility encouraging meditation. These paintings are a slice through time, water, and light.
