"Williams is unafraid to appear foolish, emotional, naked. That is the risk in making art that takes particulars and then projects universals onto them..."
—Artfortum, April 2017
Over the last 10 years, Michael Williams has created paintings known for their layered imagery, eye-popping color, and use of techniques such as airbrushing and inkjet printing. His large-scale works often begin as drawings either on paper or on the computer screen before they are printed or transferred to canvas and then embellished with oil paint. For this, his first US solo museum exhibition, Williams will present a suite of new paintings and a series of drawings.
This exhibition was organized by Eric Crosby, Richard Armstrong Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
