William Rathbun paints what surrounds him, literally, and figuratively. Constantly inspired by the environment and psychological aspects of the mind, Rathbun paints in expressive and abstract ways that spark the viewer’s imagination. The works’ colorful compositions, graphic elements, and fluidness all help to move the viewers eye seamlessly across the paintings.
Rathbun attended Massachusetts College of Art, Boston and the Art Institute of Boston. Currently, the artist works out of Wm.RathbunStudios in Leverett, MA, creating paintings, works on paper, and Illuminated neon assemblages. Rathbun has work in a number of private collections, including deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA and the University of Massachusetts.
