Communion Of Saints by Louise Williams
by Louise Williams
Drawing from a large collection of images, compiled over many years, I combine and manipulate some of them to create scenarios, fantastic and subtle narratives, that reach beyond our sense of time into the realm of the imagination.
Allegorical and dreamlike, the images in Communion of Saints are meant to elicit a personal story or memory in the viewer. Mythological symbols, drawn from classical and religious traditions, suggest our preoccupation with vulnerability, grief, and death as well as resurrection and grace. Because they are ambiguous and many-layered, the images are open to multiple, very personal interpretations. They invite a longer look and a curious mind.
