Artwork description

Williams’ work re-appropriates found images by presenting them in a new context framed or obscured by spray-painted shape and colour. In these works, the artist has taken monochromatic reproductions of British landscape painting from the 18th century and re-presented these as geometric forms evoking portals of light.

The image used in this work references a painting by a follower of Gainsboroug, William Jackson (1730-1803) Landscape with Figures and Cows. However, Williams is not concerned with the specifics of location; the landscape is presented as a sublime counter to the ambiguous, abstract forms set over or beside it.
