About the Artist Sue Williams

Writing about web page http://www.nomorepink.com/

The artist, Sue Williams, has kindly offered the symposium use of her image, Elsewhere, as a kind of emblem for the issues at the heart of the event. Iwan Bala writes of Williams:

The more one looks the less the works seem directed at the viewer – they are certainly not for our titillation – and the more they begin to resemble a diary. A confusing set of events and emotions are being presented, dare we ask more? A private world has somehow escaped, larger than life into the public domain. Is there a traumatic event being dredged up from the memory, partly hidden?”

Sue Williams writes:

The words that come to mind, apart from vulnerability, are sexual awareness, sexual control, provocation, encouragement, naivety, punishment, guilt. My paintings are my diaries, a visual interpretation of the diary. Through the visual image, words included, I relate to personal experiences and thoughts and in doing so I also connect to broader “political” comment.”
