Seed Gallery

The physical process of painting and the physical reality of paint are central to Sarah Williams’ practice. She drags thick, generous swathes of paint over contrasting grounds to draw attention to the materiality of the paint itself, and to some extent its weight and substance supersede the image in her work. Her cakes of pigment are substantial and concrete yet with subtle nuances in colour and lustre. She confidently applies layer upon layer of paint; each one mixed with the previous application upon the canvas or obscured by the following action. Residues of erstwhile paintings lie dormant beneath the finished work.

Her imagery, for the most part, comprises quiet and solitary spaces - staircases, empty rooms, corridors and the like - those banal interstitial spaces we move through every day and rarely pause to consider or appreciate. These spaces have a haunting emptiness and anonymity about them and yet a disquieting familiarity that allows the viewer to project themselves into them; the planes of her angled walls take on an impossible perspective of unease that is truer to memory than any schematic could ever be.
