We welcome back Mary Williams for another RUN of originals. Each piece in this series arrives in a hand crafted, ready to hang frame.
"This series was inspired by a true crime magazine, the death of an internet cat sensation, current events involving guns, street art, and aliens. Each piece follows a strange train of thought about things I value and topics that concern us all. I like to celebrate the absurdity of life in my work. I believe this is my most diverse and interesting run yet.
I started out making historical drawings such as John Wilkes Booth’s gun and an old electric chair. Then this man in Dearborn shot a 19 year old black woman in the face when she knocked on his door for help, so I was inspired to make another ‘neighborhood watch’ piece. I had made one before while the George Zimmerman trial was happening. Also Colonel Meow, the world’s fluffiest cat, passed away which influenced some powerful cat images. Finally I saw an ad for a new iPhone that looked like the card my birth control pills come packaged in. I had to take advantage of that goofy coincidence and make a fun feminist piece about it." - Mary Williams
