Michael Willmon-Zulu Cemetery Parade

Michael Willmon

A master of composition, color and brush handling, Michael Willmon expresses his unique apocalyptic vision in his meticulously painted vistas, which are often filled with cavorting skeletal figures and depicted in a compelling monochromatic color palette. Willmon’s continued fascination with New Orleans’ sublime revelry is apparent in this new exhibition both in his trademark graveyard scenes and also in his extraordinary treatment of Mardi Gras. In his recent paintings, Willmon extends his signature monochromatic color palette of fiery hues to include moonlit scenes of ghostly figures mingling on the grounds of Louisiana plantations that are rendered in a monochromatic palette of cool blues and cyans.
