Art Exhibition – David L. Bullis: “Looking Up”

Window On Hudson and Artistic Director Jeremy K. Bullis are proud to present the first solo exhibition of David L. Bullis paintings in “Looking Up”.  Join the celebration of David and his work during the Opening Reception for David L. Bullis: “Looking Up” on Thursday, June 8, 2023 from 5-7pm.

This reception is extra special because June 8th is also David’s birthday (1942-2011).  WOH will be continuing David’s tradition of enjoying Chinese food on this day – egg rolls and other snacks will be served at the reception. 

Jeremy has this to say about his father and the exhibition, “The title ‘Looking Up’ references many things.  A number of the paintings exhibited here are of sunsets and sky.  David loved flight and pursued it in many different ways.  As a person he might sometimes seem pessimistic, however optimism and light shine through his paintings.   And there is the unavoidable fact … David was short.  He looked up at almost everything.

“This body of work, created from 2004-2010, is searching for something.  A kind of perfection that only the artist doing the creating can see as they try to translate something tangible, like a winter’s sunrise, into an abstract painting.  Dad’s subject, the sky, is endless.  Beyond the sky … beyond the horizon and clouds and our planet’s atmosphere there is Space.  Endless space.  He thought about what was Out There constantly.  When he looked up at the clouds he also looked beyond them, far past anything he could see.  David’s awareness of a Great Depth is in his paintings … the finely drizzled lines and smears are layered upon one another until they are too numerous to count and together they form a profound field of emotion.”
