Maggie Williams (1989)

Maggie Williams’ most recent work involves the delicate transformation of familiar images from art history. At first glance, the viewer is presented with another seemingly exhaustive reproduction from The Art Book, however upon closer inspection nuances of alterations can be identified, enticing the viewer to reconsider the image’s context. The original image is redescribed with a poignant and playful twist; this selective reconstructive process bears as much importance as the final piece itself as each image is premeditated before creation.The redescription and transformation of an object or image is a theme that appears heavily throughout Maggie’s work. Whether the process is delicate or destructive, her artwork mirthfully reintroduces the object in a subtle new form.Maggie Williams (b.1989) is a British artist currently living and working in London. Since graduating from University of Hertfordshire in 2011, Maggie has both organised and exhibited in numerous group shows in and out of London.
