Painting primarily from memory, Bill Moran explores his subject matter through a palette of ethereal color. His figures appear dreamlike, wafting and floating throughout the compositional space. Moran’s paintings evoke a sense of menace along with a conflicting feeling of humor or absurdity. Moran handles his subject matter with the confident hand of an exceptionally talented artist. He works in a variety of media – acrylic, oil, and graphite on canvas, linoleum and panel. Moran also creates custom murals, faux finishes, portraits and other large-scale art commissions.
His work has been exhibited at University of Illinois at Chicago, the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, Elmhurst Museum of Art, Maloney Cooper Gallery, Los Manos Gallery, Gallery312 and many other galleries in and around Chicago
