Sue Williams

[American Painter, born in 1954] Sue Williams’ provocative paintings blur the line between private and public life. Through painting and drawing she explores her passionate and fluid style of painting. Her work is driven by the desire to understand and interpret the human condition, dynamics between people and relationships by exploring the ‘spaces in between’.

Artist’s website

When they are subjected to contemplation, by being simultaneously seductive and provocative, they return the spectator’s gaze, questioning the viewer about his or her own emotions and desires”. Ivo Mesquita, curator – Projecto Octogono, Pinacoteca do Estado, Sao Paulo, Brazil
