William Kendall thinks in terms of abstraction. The subject of his paintings is the paint itself. He is totally involved in what can be done on the canvas by the manipulation of the paint. he is dealing with the power of color - the richness of texture created by the complicated layering of imposto, scumbles, and glazes. The edges are my vocabulary - much like Jazz, improvisation is my language. He tries to keep pushing the paint- to make things happen is spontaneous ways; he uses combinations he has never used before, to see if they can function as a whole.
