New Blood Art Statement

Vivid, solid and vibrating colour is brushed and scraped across the canvas in gestural and abstract forms - the paintings are inspired by Williams’ passion for the rich spectacle of all-enveloping landscapes. The paintings imbue an atmosphere, which calls to mind Paul Klee’s words, “Art does not reproduce the visible, rather, it makes visible.” Each piece saturated with an ethereal atmosphere which envelops the senses – the smell of trodden grass or the radiating heat of Australia’s planes are almost materialised through the sensitive control of form and enlivening use of colour.

Artist Statement

The Restless Edge series was created in response to walking the coastal path around Pembrokeshire. I was struck by the different atmosphere and energy of the coast compared to the tranquil stillness of the valleys of home. The exposed rocks revealed by coastal erosion in all their glorious hues, the bright flashes of colour as the wildflowers swayed in the wind, the seabirds on the wing and the waves crashing onto the shore below me - all transmitted an intense sense of a landscape moving and changing, being reshaped by the elements. My painting became very gestural, sometimes thin and watery, like the waterfalls and waves, and sometimes impasto and textured, carved like the rocks themselves in order to respond fully to this most elemental of landscapes.
