Marshall Williams in his latest series of large paintings continues his fascination with the still and glass like surfaces
which envelope the hulls floating quietly within their watery surrounds. The boats and the reflected imagery play
across the surface in a symmetrical and frontal expanse. Subsumed in soft colour and glowing with luminous light,
the works exhibit a mood of silent calm. Drifting and stationary, often as single hull or paired in close relationship
to each other with a floating expanse of clouds above. Soft landscapes which echo the curve of the land now
also make an appearance in this show.
The mood and colour as much the subject of the works as the illusions of the image.
