Artist Notes:
Sue Williams is an important painter, and one who disproves the oft-repeated criticisms of a venerable old man of Welsh art, not Mr. Giardelli I hasten to add, that artists today cannot draw. Her drawing is used to great effect in large canvasses and this 6ft x 6ft work is a fine example of her soul-baring expression. The drawing is sometimes deliberately juvenile or childlike, because, most or all of us have our childlike moments, our tantrums even if repressed are in our make-up, and these painted drawings are diary like revelations. Other parts are ‘grown up’ and almost ‘drawing class’ examples, words are used as exclamations. She deals with issues of being a woman, a mother, and a part of a male/female relationship, a sibling and a daughter as well as an artist in today’s world. She does this without the overt simplification that we are sometimes presented with by the much more acclaimed YBA’s. She is another artist, who, as Eisteddfod Gold medal winner in 2001, has work in the NMGW’s collection.
