Margaux Williamson is a painter for our times. The global pandemic has not only reshaped our relationships with friends and family, home-life and work-life, it has also changed our feelings about familiar places. Williamson’s work, made prior to and during the pandemic, expresses curiosity and a wonder toward everyday spaces and objects.
The exhibition includes works that focus on three familiar settings: her studio, her home, and the bar. She is attuned and analytical in how she represents these spaces, but she is also disruptive. An archivist of sorts, she builds files of “text sketches”—phrases, lists, dream fragments, along with photographs, torn magazine images, and drawings—which informs her images.
