Notes

Constructed from swathes of partial canvasses, Tess Williams aims to delicately linger between the disciplines of painting, sculpture and collage work.  

“There is an underlying purity to be found in Tess Williams’ resolutely contemporary conception of new abstraction. Yet, the surfaces of her paintings reveal something more layered:  gritty textures, exposed staples, the cutting and reconstructing of canvas and in some works delicate stitching.” - Rosa JH Berland, Curator, Writer & Historian, New York, USA via Aleph Contemporary.
