Pasatiempo - - AMUSE-BOUCHE -

Matthews Gallery, 669 Canyon Road, 505-992-2882 Artist Michelle Y Wil­liams uses a pal­ette knife to cre­ate com­po­si­tions on metal, Plex­i­glas, can­vas, and wood, of­ten mix­ing raw ma­te­ri­als into the paint. “The in­spi­ra­tion for my work is both se­lec­tive and in­dis­crim­i­nate,” she said. “Af­ter the ini­tial in­flu­ence sparks the be­gin­ning of a paint­ing, the piece gen­er­ally takes on a vi­sion of its own ...” She de­scribes her process as a de­vel­op­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween her­self and a com­po­si­tion. Her paint­ings have a sense of im­me­di­acy and a be­guil­ing sim­plic­ity where ges­tu­ral, lin­ear forms in­ter­act with neb­u­lous space. Though pri­mar­ily ab­stract, they oc­ca­sion­ally con­tain fig­u­ra­tive el­e­ments. The gallery fea­tures new works by Wil­liams.
