BILL SORTINO
2000-2010

As it turned out, difficulties arose for me in the late 2000 as my sales fell as a result of changes in my work and various gallery difficulties. Ironically, the constructions I was making for most of the 90's, although I considered to be my best work, were difficult to ship and store and galleries resented this in many ways. Also, I, along with several other artists, lost a considerable number of pieces in the U.S. as well as European galleries due to the sale of paintings and constructions and the non payment to the artists! Subsequent to that, I had to take a part time job that eventually led to full time work and a diminishing of my painting time! So, the amount of work I produced between 2000 and 2010 was considerably less than normal and consisted mostly of paper pieces since they allowed me to work on and off in the studio!
