P.K. Williams, Artist Statement:
When I first began creating art, I started out realistically portraying various subject matter, mainly nature. This soon became tedious, and I felt like I was simply recreating something nature had already created.
I have now changed my methodology. My work has evolved. Instead of recreating that which already exists I enjoy exploring concepts and themes which allow my ideas and curiosity to take precedent over realism. In addition to presenting ideas formed from researching various themes I use experimentation and intuition to create compositions which compliment my thoughts.
Since I use mixed processes, my pieces are a varied collection of techniques including collage, paper staining, printmaking, epoxy resin pouring, painting and my personal favorite, paper excavation. I enjoy combining several of these techniques into one piece and I think that is what makes my work unique.
My philosophy is that if I relate to something; someone else will also relate to it. In a current series I am exploring beginnings; both personal and those of all mankind and our surroundings. In some of my paintings I have put elements which are reminders of my own roots. People are reminded of their own starts in life while looking at mine. We are all connected in one way or another. When I can reach deep down and find these connections, I am successful as an artist.
