A Unique Perspective

John M. Williams specializes in creating landscape and portrait collages of historical figures. In effect “painting with paper,” John uses hundreds of small pieces of cut paper to create a likeness of his subject revealing the person’s character as well as his historical significance. The results are compelling, multifaceted fine art collages.


New WORK - CURRENT SHOWS - ANNOUNCEMENTS


WEEKEND SHOW IN PROVINCETOWN MASS

Come to Gallery Voyeur  and see how John brings history to life through his stunning collages. In a room full of faces, you will be drawn in first by their eyes, beckoning you to come closer to meet the sitter face-to-face.  Once the eyes draw you in, you will see the myriad details that illuminate the portraits -- sunlight on Sacajawea's face, Lincoln's cowlick.  Each element is filled with emotive content purposefully placed to tell the individual's personal story.  John uses small pieces of cut paper to sculpt faces full of emotion, surrounded by background elements woven together to illustrate the subject's story. He also creates landscapes and whimsical subjects like Chinese Dragon and Panda.

VIDEO OF JOHN'S RECENT COLLAGE WORKSHOP:

Brio Integrated Theatre sponsored John's Talk and Collage Workshop which are featured in the above video. The event was held March 5th at Crawford Memorial Church in Winchester, MA and was a wonderful family focused event.  John spoke about his artistic vision and technique and described how he sees his work as a metaphor for his daily life…. making order out of chaos by organizing many disparate elements into a unified and coherent image.
