|About the Artist:
Bill Hornaday is a BFA graduate from UCLA, where he attended both the Art and Film Schools. Bill worked in the film industry for many years, for Columbia Pictures and Avco Embassy Pictures among other companies. Bill has worked intermittently as a photographer since film school and as always used the camera as a form of artistic expression. Since 2005, Bill has been devoting himself full-time to photography and photography-related mixed media. Bill’s interest recently has concentrated on the reflections of light and color to create abstractions, and using these abstractions to photographically “paint” a picture through the lens. Bill does not use any filters whatsoever to abstract his images, but captures these photo-paintings directly from nature. He has been shown at the Smithsonian, and in galleries in Monterey, Palo Alto, Bethesda and Santa Cruz.
