Wendy Williams: About here at MerseyBIO
Wendy Williams studied Fine Art in Birmingham and took additional further studies later on in Liverpool, in both Community Arts and Interior design.
She has won several awards for her work and has been involved in artist exchange programmes in the UK, Europe and America.
The mixed areas of study has enabled her work to evolve and adapt from the painterly order of earlier years, to the more recent combinations of mixed media.
A concern for the environment has been the basis for this recent body of work. Working primarily with recycled materials, she uses plastic as a tool to convey the relationship between our own existence in the use of these materials with their or our follow on journey after disposal.
'A Means of Travel' was one of the works shown recently in the Independent Biennial exhibition 'about Here', at The Gallery, Liverpool. It is one of many pieces in which wings have been used to convey this personal journey.
It not only follows the literal interpretation of the Biennial integral theme of 'Touched', but conveys a sense of being 'moved' by the destructive elements of pollution.
