Label Text: Bailey has been called a "Realist", yet with his beautifully rendered objects he creates an imaginary universe with extraordinary serenity and order, a very unreal, metaphysical place. His subtle palette of ochres and siennas filter out all violent strains of feeling and create a mysterious, poetic space. Bailey retains strict control of his pictorial space with the smallest margin of psychological or literary association.
