Artist Statement

Bailey utilizes the potency and political hierarchy of traditional oil painting techniques as a frequency through which he communicates his reactions towards the impulse of society. He is intrigued by social-constructs and the ambiguities of the reality it imposes on the human psyche. His consciousness of context and content, has helped to channel his interrogations toward the provocative nature of these social-constructs with regards to issues of class, racial
and gender politics, colonialism and its psychological residues.
