Seattle-born artist and Colby College alumnus William Ingham ’66 is known for his fusion of bicoastal influences and loose Abstract Expressionist painting. Drawing from multiple movements including the New York School and Minimalism, the artist maintains the autonomy of his paintings and the refusal of immediately recognizable imagery. Rich in color and sweeping movement and drawing inspiration from the Pacific Northwest, Ingham creates paintings that are at once both dreamlike and organic. Large canvases and concentrated hues further Ingham’s exploration of scale, stroke, and line, resulting in lavish and complex paintings that are carefully and deliberately produced.
