Aubrey Williams’ art resists definition and the significance of his work was not fully appreciated in his own lifetime. This book of artwork and essays, edited by Reyahn King, demonstrates the strength of the artist’s work and shows that Williams was an important international artist.
Born in Guyana, Williams had a preoccupation with the indigenous and ancient cultures of Central and South America. These defined his artistic vision and helped him develop his own visual language; an authentic Caribbean identity within a modern mainstream art world. His paintings feature fragmented objects, intense natural colours and hint at musical counterpoint and dramatic spatial effects.
