Sarah Williams - Stay A While
A celebration of the Space Overlooked
As someone who has moved around their whole life, Williams has a fascination with the banal interstitial spaces that we move through and occupy every day. Her imagery for the most part, comprises of quiet solitary space - staircases, empty rooms, corridors and the like. These empty rooms have a haunting emptiness and anonymity about them, and yet also a familiarity. The physical process of painting is an important part of William's practise. Her works call for attention to the material surface of the picture. Each painting is made up of layers upon layers of paint, and often these layers are dragged and scraped back to reveal and conceal. This exhibition is a celebration of the space overlooked. It seeks to draw the observer into a moment. To surprise, delight and remind.
