Professor Jim Williams has been teaching printmaking at the University of Cincinnati since 1970
, and is the Associate Director of the School of Art. He has been the mentor of many,
many printmakers, now teaching or working artists, over the years.
He has exhibited widely in the US and is in many public and private collections.
This latest body of work is created using unorthodox materials;
scraps of wood, metal, plastic, paper and other assorted debris.
These materials are then composed and collaged into an inked surface and then transferred to paper.
Within these micro/macro, metaphoric/biomorphic landscapes, texture and form coalesce.
Striving for a delicate balance the images take on the appearance of hybrid structures dwelling in a state of flux.
They are my search for a visual equivalent to the daily dynamic interplay
that occurs between the manmade and the natural environment.
Gallery Hours are Final Fridays 6 to 9 p.m.
M - W - F 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturdays noon to 4 p.m.
