Art Brokerage: William Wiley American Artist: b. 1937 Many of William Wiley's early prints, as with his paintings, are autobiographical. They are replete with modest personal references.William Wiley is the first person narrator of a rich inner landscape, and the grist for his images are his experiences and his abundant imagination-what Wiley has seen and what he was thinking about at the time, the reflections and reactions within Wiley's world. On first glance they seem simple and direct, yet they are often ambiguous, open to broad interpretation. Whatever layers a viewer penetrates, Wiley's cartoon-like imagery seduces his audience into a closer examination that compels us to ruminate on the nature of art and the messages of the artist.
