David Charles Williams is a British Artist living and working in Wales where he makes paintings that draw directly from experiences within the landscape in conjunction to the awareness of ‘self’. Williams considers himself a painter who straddles upon the ideology of Abstract painting referencing ‘Baroque’, ‘op art’ and ‘color field’ sensibilities. Often adopting a circular motif in which he refers to as his ‘centered paintings’. His practice uses a language of contrasting ground rules, where rigid structure sits in conjunction with phenomenological principles and human instinct.

Williams’ narrative resides within the philosophical, where he supposes the division between the ‘Natural’ and the ‘Synthetic’. Williams’ work is full of romantic gesture with an uncompromising spark of intent. He draws from the past, looking ever further forward, whilst standing right in the present.

Williams has an enriched Arts background, training and working within Fine Art, Music, Fashion, Graphic Design, Film and Computer Aided Arts and Media.

David explains his work by saying, “I endeavor to make beautifully constructed paintings that impact upon the viewer where I will surpass meaning, enlighten the realization of ‘now’ and rouse the contemplation of a moment if just for a moment, inspired by ‘Nature’ and the Nature of ‘Self’”.
