About this Piece

The following description of this painting was written by Shannon Komodore, the artist’s widow. In the email that accompanied the description, Shannon wrote the following, “…if you were to ask Bill, he'd tell you this stuff, but he'd also say that all of his paintings are really about paint more than anything else.”

Lilith – Komodore read sacred texts and mythologies of various cultures and religions. He was especially drawn to the literatures of mystical sects. Lilith appeared in many ancient stories and early Jewish texts, including the Kabbalah, as the first wife of Adam, a malevolent seductress and other female demons. SK

About the Artist

Bill Komodore

Bill Komodore was born in Athens, Greece in 1932, and moved to the United States and received his formal education at Tulane University, where his professors included George Rickey, Mark Rothko, and David Smith. He earned his B.A. in 1955, and M.F.A. in 1957. Mr. Komodore was known for his figurative works, playing with both the mythical idea of Arcadia as a place of creative perception and with the experience of being a native of the actual Arcadia, Greece, which he describes as “the bucolic land of sheperds, beautiful nymphs, and satyrs.” He showed with Gerald Peters in Dallas, and at Decorazon Gallery. His work is represented in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art; The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Walker Art Center; Dallas Museum of Art; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
