about the artist
Michelle Y Williams is a Houston based creator, explorer, humanitarian, and artist. Her work flows through multiple channels, including canvas, wood, metal, plexiglas & clay.
She notes that the inspiration for her work is both selective and completely random, ranging from the excitement of imperfection and flaws to an appreciation for rust, asymmetry, the texture of concrete, peeling paint, or the principles of wabi-sabi – and artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Cy Twombly, Eva Hesse, Hans Josephsohn and Louise Nevelson.
Through primarily non-representational imagery, the observer is left with only abstract emotions and instinctual responses towards the painting – feelings and memories are free to manifest based on actual life experiences.
