About Bill Sortino

I have noticed that within the lives of most people the process of creating always seems to be described as something special or unusual. However, while most artists spend countless hours within this creative space, in truth, everyone else also lives a life full of creativity as well, they just do not classify the amount of time they are being creative in "normal" day-to-day situations. That said, for many of us working in the arts we do not choose this life as one might choose a profession to work within. Many, like me, are somehow compelled to create art. That compulsion is all that stands between being alive or being essentially dead! It is not that one cannot do anything else, it is just that the only thing that motivates and expresses the truth of life is the creative process; everything else flows through that.

It is through that process that most artists live and attempt to provide something that they can share with others. Since this process is always changing and like life is very often unstable, we are never quite sure of what we are expressing. As we move through our careers, we find that although regularly confronted with the unknown, it is through that space that we exist, despite its continuously looming potholes. But that is the place of the creative spirit and also the place of truth! I try to make my work express my truth and within that, create fluid visions of my interpretation of what I experience through the senses.

My work is about this truth and the developing themes in my life. I feel there is not a true beginning nor is there a true ending; there is just the process! I start sometimes with a line, a series of lines, a drawing and then add color and then the lines begin to interact with the color and they take certain shapes and forms and this process just seems to continue from start until finish. Or, possibly not finish, but just "feel" right. The work, like most non-objective art, really has no place in time, yet it may feel like it does. When that works well, I think we can call that Art In Motion!
