In her upcoming exhibition Autumn Palette, Sue Williams continues her annotation of dislocated relationships. Figurative images swirl about the canvas, creating a veiled surface dense with innuendo. In her previous bodies of work Williams detailed autobiographical violence and abuse that is also everyday life for many women. Her new paintings inherit the intensity of those brutal scenarios, but signal a departure from any organized exploration or treatise. Williams' use of repetitive images suggests a haunting thought or action, contemplated over and over again. These replayed and layered images mimic the scattered fluidity of a stream of consciousness dialogue. 


Sue Williams focuses on painting as a field of private voices and reflection. Her latest paintings map out the pockets of tension that lie between despair and release, absurdity and humor, conscious and unconscious.
