The work of New York-based artist Tad Wiley exemplifies high abstraction and geometric complexity. Combining elements found in architecture and the natural world, Wiley explores the formation of painting into a “very personal ad specific, active object.” Often painted on large wood or synthetic panels, his works exude a melding of color and form, illustrating Wiley’s experimental and spontaneous working process.


After moving to New York City in 1978, Tad Wiley’s first exhibition was at The Drawing Center 1982, followed by a solo exhibition in 1984 at the Leslie Cecil Gallery on 72nd St. Since then Wiley has exhibited his paintings and works on paper in galleries and museums in New York and other major cities throughout the United States including George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ, Lang & O'Hara Gallery, New York, NY, and the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY. Wiley is the recipient of several awards including The Pollock Krasner Foundation grant and The Edward Albee Foundation fellowship. His work is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
