Paintings inspired by life

By Quentin Heath Willis

December 9 – January 29, 2016

 

Quentin Heath Willis is a native of Nashville, Tennessee but currently lives in Connecticut. His paintings draw inspiration from sources outside of the art world, such as religious and philosophical texts, moments with loved ones, and images of current and historic events. However, his inspiration is also driven to a large degree by the circumstances surrounding a life of addiction and mental illness. Much of Heath's work has been an attempt to work through drug abuse, abstinence, homelessness, and the rebuilding of life. It has given him meaning when everything seemed hopeless, and has been the one constant in his chaotic life. Through his paintings, Heath simply hopes to inspire and bring pleasure to his audience. He paints to express color, emotion, spirituality, pain, and joy. “

 

“At the age of 45, my life is showing signs of stability. But I will never lose my passion and need to create, and could never live without the ability to express myself through painting.”
