Michael WilliamsBook - 2017
The narrative content of Williams's work reveals his dark sense of humor and exploration of the role of the painter as observer. Three large canvases in the exhibition, for example, develop from the same scene from one of the artist's drawings: a student seated in a classroom daydreaming about lacrosse during a lecture about global warming. Williams's wickedly funny allegories merge with abstract painting and amoebic shapes, which sometimes fill the entirety of his canvases. The resulting works offer the eye a dense and absorbing terrain of color and form. Pushing his experiments with a large-scale latex printer one step further, Williams also presents two paintings that are wholly printed in contrast to his works in oil paint. Exhibition: Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, United States (21.04. - 27.08.2017).
