About the Book


About the Author

Bill Rane always moved about his studio, constantly weaving around his easels, dripping, dropping, and dashing brushstrokes. To the casual observer, the process might have appeared both random and obsessive - yet these strokes were most assuredly from the steady hand of a master. As he moved, his visitors would often hear him talk about "the literature of paint," a phrase that revealed he was an avid reader with a boundless curiosity for the literature, arts, and myths of all cultures. He could just as easily delve into the Greek Classics or ancient Egyptian or Mayan mythologies to create a visual metaphor. At the same time, he admired such masters as Modigliani and Picasso while remaining resolute in forging his own unique style. In short, Bill Rane immersed body and soul in every painting. This energy, and his inspired interpretation of cultural elements both ancient and modern, produced a large body of paintings, which collectively can be aptly termed a modern codex of universal truths.
