About The Event
The title of Williams' show “OBSESSION” explores the use of shape, color, and form into three distinct groups spherical, striation, and combinative; like a DNA signature, it is ever-present throughout Williams’ various mediums and continually evolves. Williams' extrudes the essence of their origins; representing without depicting, extracting and abstracting interpretations of topographical observations by surveying and flattening perspective and rendering expressive compositions while simultaneously creating anew and innovating with her medium.
Over fifty works will be available at this show that will also include a selection of unusually small works (Marquette’s of more significant paintings) specifically for this event.
Through her exploration of color and its impact on visual beauty, Williams continues to emphasize the emotional, expressive, and pictorial qualities that are found in abstract art, using shapes, colors, forms, and gestural marks to achieve her desired effects. Williams’ paintings are a celebration of geological environments re-imagined, of their delicate and ephemeral seasons, of their ability to regenerate, revive and restore. These very contrasts—between the beauty of decay and renewal and the joyfulness of reinterpretation—are at the core of her practice.
MEDIUM & PROCESS
Williams creates her signature work by blending an alcohol-based, acid-free, highly pigmented fluid paint medium on non-porous surfaces; mostly polycarbonate coated aluminum panels. She uses compressed air and gravitational techniques in multiple layers to capture an arena of colors. Inspired by natures structure from a topographical viewpoint, Williams flattens perspective with her trademark patterning of spherical, striated and a combinative patterning. She has developed a unique style into a re-imagined rhythmic visual dialogue that is soothing and stimulating.
