Artist statement/Anne R. Williams (Contributor Information)
I graduated from college with a B. A. in painting and printmaking and moved on to explore the possibilities of many other media—drawing, watercolor, book arts, letterpress, papermaking, then cycling back to painting in more recent years. Currently, painting in oils, drawing and book arts are the three media I prefer the most.
For painting, I like the effect of painting on sheets of aluminum, but, not being inclined to work with metal, instead I apply layers of transparent oil over aluminum silver leaf on panel. This approach to painting incorporates what I enjoy most about creating an image: spontaneity, luminosity, unpredictability, transparency, novelty and occasionally the opportunity to include words. These qualities are what attract me to drawing and book arts too.
Any subject that inspires me is subject matter for my work, in both representational and non-representational varieties. Work can be viewed at www.annerwilliams-art.com.
