William Kurelek created between an estimated 2,000 and 4,000 works of art in less than thirty years. Prolific and driven, he created easel paintings, massive murals, singular tableaus, and narrative series with multiple works. His was a diverse, even divided, oeuvre that oscillated between the nostalgic and the nightmarish. Although his early paintings are inward-looking, precise, and claustrophobic, Kurelek’s mature work is marked by more general visual propositions about the fluctuating world around him and the common struggles that divide and bind the human family.
