andrea m williams (artdria)

My work explores perception and persistence. What do we create and what fragments remain? What are the indelible physical and emotional effects of our actions? How do we bear these seen and unseen marks? In my work, I interpret the interior body, its function and fragility.

Educated as a figurative artist in the tradition of working from life, I play with the idea of what we cannot see with our eyes. How do we measure what we cannot see? Do we fight or accept the frailty of the body? How do we translate trauma? Creating this work has allowed me to consider the physical body and attempt to cope with its impermanence.
