Statement

Bill Driscoll was born in Columbus, Ohio and attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio State University. For twenty years he has worked in museums and related fields as an art handler and exhibit installer-building dinosaur skeletons at Chicago’s Field Museum, and feverishly handling the masterworks collection of paintings for MoMA and the Guggenheim. His own work is a composite of styles that have recently come together in a large, black and white, brush and ink format culling classic paintings, comics and graphic novels. His subject matter emanates from a whirling, undisciplined well of random ideas that focuses on everything from politics and environmental issues, to simple flights of fancy.
