> DESCRIPTION

Drawing upon the hyperbolic narrative imagery of Medieval art, the recent collage works featured in Adrian Williams’ solo exhibition Verses Vs. Verses unfold intricate visual tales predicated on metaphysical questions of time, progress and scale. Foregrounding his reverence for historical objects and iconography, Williams’ collages are deftly crafted from vintage print material; the tawny hues of aged book pages marking each piece with the shadows of time passed. Hints of clipped text and border gradients call attention to the edges of the page where Williams physically and metaphorically looks beyond the limits of literary storytelling, forming his narratives from the space where the words end. Navigating both the personal and the political, the stories issuing from these works carry, in equal measure, profound senses of hopelessness and wonderment, despair and possibility.
