New York-based artist Billy
opening on Saturday, May 19 in East Hampton.
has long described his work as “diaristic,” capturing the people
around him who could include friends, artists, writers, models, or
just randomly met strangers. Anchoring his practice is a large
archive of personal photographs—originally slides, now digital
images—which often serve as visual templates for his deceptively

social boundaries and creates collaboration,” says Sullivan. “I
am never a voyeur, the subject is always a participant.”
A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, May 26 from 6 - 8 pm.
