Todd Williamson: Thoughts from a Mind like Mine
April 2 - May 14, 2011
Artist Reception Saturday, April 2, 2011 5-8pm
George Billis Gallery is pleased to present the Los Angeles gallery's first solo exhibition of Los Angeles artist Todd Williamson's work, titled Thoughts from a Mind like Mine. The exhibition features the artist newest body of paintings and continues through May 14th.
Williamson's abstract paintings are nuanced and intriguing. While clearly in dialogue with the American colorist tradition of the likes of Rothko, Williamson's paintings show a visually vocabulary that is all his own. Paint is pulled across the surface revealing layers of color and varied textures all the while being held in balance with the horizontal line systems that are a hallmark of Williamson's current body of work. There is a musicality to these pieces - not only in the structural connection to a musical score's bars but also in the mood and lyricism of his colors. At times disturbing and on the edge and at other times calm and coolly distance, Williamsons paintings are stunning visual experiences that simultaneously reflect an emotional journey and capture the feel of a specific moment.
