• Laura Williams

Laura Williams has created an installation in Page's window gallery evocative of the luscious domestic interiors depicted in the artist's own paintings. Featuring a suite of hand-painted wallpapers against which are hung a selection of the artist's previous works, it is as if one has stumbled upon a real life iteration of one of Williams' illustrated worlds.

"I wanted to suggest a larger than life version of the rooms that I paint which have a reoccurring language of patterns which mean specific things to me. ⁠ ⁠ I loved a recent description of my paintings as 'claustrophobic spaces that vibrate with charged psychological tensions', and I wanted to see if that feeling was still present in a larger scale, especially as the bright green are a nod to the Arsenic used by Victorian's to colour their wallpaper and fabrics of the time. Literally an ode to a poisonous type of domesticity. ⁠ ⁠ I worked for 20 years in retail and I always loved the art of window dressing. Naturally, I was drawn to a chance to undertake an installation for the window gallery as it offered me a unique chance to meld my current art practice with my past life as shop girl."⁠
