From the Falconer's Notebook: Egyptian Sabatical, 2011.

 

Will is a Student Scholar in a number of fields. Ancient History, Paleo-Anthropology, Law, Writing, Comparitive Religion, and Modern Media - to include Filmmaking and Musical Narrative and Arrangement, fuel his expression and professorial 'love affair' as a Pope Sextant Arts and Letters Fellow. Groupings of paintings can be readily identified by subject matter, style, and personal interest according to Will's scholastic assertion at any given period. His paintings are a vehicle by which he seeks to convey an underlying common human narrative. Painting, like the novel, can be used to layer meaning upon meaning, toward the pyramidal apex of 'stephania' - the 'aha' moment of understanding the multitudinous strands of woven meaning within the pretense of a simple magical realism.
