Overview

American artist Bill Viola (born 1951) is one of the most renowned video artists in the world, a major figure standing somewhat apart from others whose artistic expression is enabled by—and inseparable from—New Media technology. Bill Viola: Reflections is published to coincide with an exhibition at Villa Panza in Varese, Italy of selected works produced between the late 1970s and 2008, works chosen to exemplify Viola’s central preoccupation with human consciousness and experience, as well as his interest in mysticism and symbolism, from both East and West. Viola’s relative eschewal of computer editing and use of extreme slow motion imbue his video installations with almost painterly qualities. With 48 reproductions in color, Bill Viola: Reflections also includes a previously unpublished interview with the artist.
