I have such admiration for people who live moment to moment, seizing each day as if it were their last. The artwork of Houston artist Michelle Y. Williams is the artistic equivalent of the ultimate in uninhibited spontaneity.
Perhaps it is the perceived improvisation of abstracts like Williams’ that attracts me so deeply. They call to the place in my spirit that longs to be the kind of person who doesn’t need to plan carefully, one who can just pick up and go at a moment’s notice.
Pops of fluid color flow across the canvas among veiled foggy tones and textures, like vivid mirage-like pools.
In the midst of the tonal textures, we find surprises of color and light. It’s almost as if we’re wandering lost through the fog, catching glimpses of life in the mist.
Please visit Michelle Y. Williams’ website to see more of her work. If you happen to be near Tulsa, OK, be sure to check out her current exhibition at Exhibit by Abersons, a beautifully curated gallery!
