Biography:

Whit Conrad is a New York City and Bedford, NY based artist. He is a graduate of the New York Studio School in painting. His work has been shown at various public venues. He is a trustee of the Vermont Studio Center where he was board chair for 7 years, and a trustee of the Katonah Museum of Art. Previously a lawyer in NYC, he has degrees from Yale and Harvard Law School.  

I try to capture the poetry and mystery in what I see. My paintings are all conceived by an image that strikes me as powerful or interesting in one sense or another. The image triggers an inquiry—often emotional, often playful—into elements of form, color, and narrative. I normally begin with the visual world: a pictorial idea. This can be something I have seen and perhaps sketched or photographed, or drawn from my collection of family photos, books and newspapers: the richly landscaped archives of memory. Whatever its origin, the image becomes my companion in the journey through my imagination and the demands of the medium. Together we evolve, complicate, suffer, celebrate, transform.
