Mark Williams' geometric abstractions reveal a sensual interplay of structure and color. His intuitive use of vertical and horizontal elements merges with a keen understanding of muted tones, resulting in carefully balanced paintings of seemingly endless variation intended to be both scrutinized and contemplated. Williams has exhibited widely throughout the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden and Brazil. Recent venues include the Museum Liner Appenzell, Switzerland; Kunstverein Eislingen, Germany; Musee D'Art, Neuchatel, Switzerland; and Krannert Art Museum, Illinois, with an upcoming show scheduled at the Katonah Museum, New York. His awards include The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation Residency; a grant from the Pollock Krasner Foundation; and two grants from the National Endowment of the Arts. A fellow of the Independent Study Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Williams lives and works in New York City.
