DESCRIPTION

For his first solo exhibition at Foxy Production, PETER WILLIAMS presents large figurative and smaller semi-abstract paintings. The larger paintings depict fanciful, fractured narratives that mix cultural and personal flashpoints with fields of patterning and textured color. The smaller paintings distill and intensify visual moments from the larger canvasses.

Some works take their figurative inspiration from social commentary and pivotal moments in the artist’s life, while others form innately and organically, as psychosomatic arrangements. His open-ended visual narratives combine a range of references: from lynchings, and the death of Trayvon Martin, to Velásquez, Colescott, Warhol, and Disney.

Peter Williams (Nyack, NY, 1952) first exhibited at the Woodstock Music Festival Exhibition in Bethel, NY, in 1969. He lives and works in Wilmington, DE, and holds a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art
