Notes


About 

 
Tess Williams is a London based painter who graduated from her Masters at Central Saint Martins in 2015.  
She has since had solo shows in Germany, Spain and the UK, and group shows in France, Italy, the Netherlands and Denmark.  
Her work is held in collections across Europe and the USA.  
 
Materially rooted in the details of urban and bodily landscapes, Williams’ painting practice explores the physical deconstruction and reconfiguration of traditional abstract painting.  
By incorporating the use of collage, textiles and installation she allows the tangible and visceral material details be the central focus. Canvases are ripped up, recomposed, layered, sewn back together, altered completely, before evolving to become a finished work. 
A reflection of her upbringing in central London, the industrial aesthetic is a continuous draw: rugged surfaces, exposed staples, gritty greys and blacks. This is in opposition to the softer, fleshy, bodily palette that is often used, alongside natural linens, raw canvas, frayed edges and delicate stitching. This contrast explores the relationship between the male and female properties of materials, and how when juxtaposed, they can form a dynamic visual language. Also bringing into question themes of domesticity and gender stereotypes within painting as a medium.

Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity and all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust. When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
