Aaron Williams’ large oil paintings undulate between sebaceous formlessness and rigid, architectonic form. Exploring the psychology of adolescence and repression, his work suggests human flesh in the process of radical change. The subject matter, which includes the trauma of school shootings and the cosmology of sociopaths, provides the emotional trigger that launches Williams’ intuitive process.

Although his paintings do not provide a comfortable sense of moral certainty, they do extend the hope that the mind may be as mutable as the plastic arts – capable not only of erratic mutation but of clarity, transfiguration, and grace.
