William Song currently resides on Vashon Island, Washington. He has been deeply influenced by year-long stays in Italy, Japan and New Mexico and extended visits to India. His paintings are a meditative process, with attention on the purity and clarity of energy and relationships within the resonant tonal field of the painting. His focus is on light as both consciousness and communication.
William’s life experiences, including a Watson Fellowship and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, reflect explorations of abstract and intuitive awareness. The continual change, dissolution, renewal and unity of the woods, fields, creeks and sky on Vashon shape the co-creative process by which his works coalesce.
