William Downs: Sometimes it Hurts

William Downs has said that he makes art to speak the truth, and that truth is located in the human body. Drawing is Downs’s primary medium, with the figure as foundation for his compositions, and the line as his elemental form of mark making. Stories, dreams, and personal experiences enter into his compositions, which may or may not be recognizable to the viewer.
