Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Sue Williams: New Paintings, this catalogue features full plate images, details, installation photographs, and an essay by art historian and scholar Julie Belcove.
This exhibition and catalogue explore Williams’ continued interest in exploring the fluid boundary between figuration and abstraction and her pursuance of the transformation of one into the other. Williams is often playful, but there is purpose to her play; a sense of domestic disquiet and sociopolitical anxiety pervade these paintings. As she has said, “I want to draw attention to issues: I want people to be informed. It’s a scary time. Everything gets integrated into the art, not always consciously. If I have visibility I have the responsibility to try and change things” (Sue Williams in an interview with Carly Gaebe, “The Sum of Its Parts: An Interview with Sue Williams” Art in America, January 15, 2014).
