Michael Williams: New Paintings
Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich
October 12 – December 21, 2019

Michael Williams makes work that interrogates the history of painting, often by dismantling its components into their constituent parts. His pictures employ form to reflect on the complexity and contradictions of modern life. He works on canvas, availing himself of a range of techniques including oil painting, collage, and inkjet prints. In his new works, Williams examines the relationship between painting and photography, transferring the chilly aloofness that is characteristic of the latter onto the former. The photographic “negative” yields a smooth canvas disencumbered of its painterly qualities and the medium’s historic ballast.

This publication includes several foldout plates that illustrate Williams’ creative approach, and a brief essay by his Austrian fellow painter Tobias Pils.
