About Margaux Williams

My practice is the culmination of my experiences synthesized into a particular moment of creation. The process is the artwork. The product of the ultimate experience is of importance, no doubt, but the practical contact with my materials is where I feel the extension of myself into visual form.
My work is autobiographical and abstractly references my life. The subject maybe memories of landscapes or people but my emotional experience of them is what I find to be the most important. I have always felt overwhelmed by nature for its beauty and its strength. The power of nature to create is something that I feel is particularly linked to my identity as an artist and as a female. I believe that my femaleness is essential to my expression and I aim to be confessional in my art making.
My process of making work is like meeting a new friend. There is excitement and curiosity. But there is a sense of reservation in the encounter that lingers under the surface. I crave to uncover the vulnerable intimacy between material, subject, and creator. In my practice I probe, I poke, I prose, and I paint in order to meet myself.
