Sue Williams: Art For The Institution And The Home

by Sue Williams (Artist), Dan Cameron (Editor), Juan Carlos Roman (Text by)
 
Combining a manifest lack of prejudice with a vigorous brutality, Sue Williams' caustic paintings of domestic violence and sex rippled, bulged and slammed off the colored surface, admitting no prudishness or ignorance. Then, in the last few years, they went abstract, pulling funny, slippery, teasing forms and lines from her earlier brashness. Here they are, all fluids

Overview

Combining a manifest lack of prejudice with a vigorous brutality, Sue Williams' caustic paintings of domestic violence and sex rippled, bulged and slammed off the colored surface, admitting no prudishness or ignorance. Then, in the last few years, they went abstract, pulling funny, slippery, teasing forms and lines from her earlier brashness. Here they are, all fluids running together across the page spread.
