Microscapes presents a series of intimate paintings operating within the confines of the landscape genre, simultaneously revelling in and distorting its components.
The imagery is sourced from well loved, fossil laden stones moved about the family garden for the duration of my life. From this starting point, real and imagined forms collide together in a morphing, liquid landscape executed with energetic gestural brush marks.
Paul Williams completed his Masters of Visual Arts at The Victorian College of the Arts in 2008.
His most recent solo exhibitions include Stone Rivulet at Anna Pappas Gallery (2016), Sunken Garden at Neo Space (2014), Nothing Solid at Gallery 9, Background Noise at The Substation (2013), Ghost Gums at Gallery 9 (2013), Nature Walk at Mr Kitly (2013) and Time Frames at Seventh Gallery (2011).
