Sue Williams

Art for the Institution and the Home

November 22, 2002 – January 26, 2003

In all the phases of her painting, the American painter Sue Williams has remained true to one principle. While she professes dissolving form in abstraction, she simultaneously allows a corporeality to emerge through the gestural brush strokes against a monochrome background. The exhibition in the Secession assembles works from the last ten years, making it possible to trace the painterly development in Sue William’s work.


Sue Williams, born in Chicago Heights, Illinois, in 1954, lives and works in New York City.
