about the artist :
MICHELLE Y WILLIAMS

Michelle Y Williams developed her renowned “Cut” series in 2001. Beginning with steel which is torched by hand, she applies her various materials creating small, original paintings which cross the line into dimensional sculpture by way of her trademark plexiglas mount using bronze hardware. These small works may also become a sort of maquette, often inspiring larger works on canvas or wood. Many of Michelle’s loyal collectors await with anticipation new pieces for their expanding collections of her ongoing “Cut” series.

Much of Michelle's methods gain influence from the worldview wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic that embraces the transient self. That is to say, rather than disregarding one's weaknesses, or thinking of such imperfections from a state of confrontation, Michelle, as put forth in her work, seeks to embody these reputed flaws. In accepting the process of life, of its misshapen ways and understated moments, one can maintain a fuller sense of self, and approach once challenging faults with gratification, with thankfulness. In a stain, we find understanding; in a dent, our ability to heal; in a blemish, an unchained beauty. Michelle's art is a diligent offering of this ideal, of the concerted outlook we must bring into others, and into our own lives.
