Lana Williams | Quiet Riot
October 20th - November 27th
Reception: Friday, November 4th, 6-9 pm
We are close, but there is a gap
you only see what you want to see
leaving out part of the picture, part of me.
Silence and space.
Interface Gallery is pleased to present Quiet Riot, a solo exhibition of new work by Lana Williams.
For this exhibition, Williams presents a series of colorful, shaped paintings and stretched photographs, housed within powder coated, angular steel frames. The stretched, shaped canvases do not fit their frames, evoking tension between forms and painted space. At times, the paintings extend beyond the frame, integrating with the space around them and expanding into something part sculptural and part installation.
Through this queering of form, Williams produces works that resist expectations and negotiate the politics of painting and identity.
