This piece of original artwork arrives ready to hang.
"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
Each piece in this RUN comes signed by Mary Williams along with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
ABOUT Mary Williams:
Mary Williams has been drawing since childhood and began a series of mood-laden interiors in college. Those drawings led her to begin large scale portraiture in graduate school. Needing to break out of her habits and gain a wider audience, she began incorporating her drawings into collages. This led her to work with more social themes such as feminism, gun control and the preservation of the environment and its creatures.
