Billy Zane is an American artist most often associated with his celebrated work in cinema as an actor. However, the raw authenticity of his paintings, drawings and photography which has exhibited in Los Angeles, London, Budapest, Milan, and Miami, has garnered him nearly as much recognition and critical praise.
His abstract expressionist paintings are bold juxtapositions of kinetic application and elegantly balanced color combination derived from both intentional and naturally occurring contradictory influences. He likes to inform the process through self imposed restrictions. Limited time and resources promote a controlled chaos and encourage “beautiful accidents,” as he puts it. To achieve this, most of his paintings are created outdoors, under fleeting daylight, with mostly found and recycled materials in remote natural locations.
