Bill Killebrew and Warren Greene

Cumberland Gallery, September 19 to October 17

Bill Killebrew’s first solo exhibition at Cumberland Gallery and Warren Greene’s second opens with an artists’ reception on Saturday, September 19, from 6 until 8 p.m. While their styles are decidedly different, the pairing of their subject matter is quite complementary. Citing Édouard Vuillard and Giorgio Morandi as important influences, Killebrew says his choice of subject is guided by a particular element of light or a distinguishing spatial feature springing from the beauty of daily life seen in his figures, interiors, landscapes, and still lifes.

Warren Greene’s paintings can be described as abstracted landscape. He uses a technique in which paint is laid on wood panels, then selectively removed or manipulated. As Greene describes it, “The layered and scraped surfaces form a kind of corpus, composed of sometimes translucent and other times opaque skins that sometimes hide and other times reveal.”
