PETER WILLIAMS REVIEWED FOR NAD NOW
PETER WILLIAMS REVIEWED FOR NAD NOW
The Trouble with "Truth": Peter Williams's Black Universe

"The eye-popping color purposefully draws both the attention and empathy of the viewer, as much a plea to recognize the context of the death as its memorialization. It is this same guiding principal, the interplay between context and content, that drives paintings such as George Floyd Triptych, 2020, a three-part rendering of the life, death, and burial of George Floyd reminiscent of a stained glass window. Floyd’s death at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers sparked the ongoing Black Lives Matter demonstrations."

"While group shows can sometimes lack a coherent vision, this one seems worth a trip. All of the works were made during the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from bitingly political paintings to beautiful reflections on home."

REVIEW: PETER WILLIAMS IN HYPERALLERGIC
REVIEW: PETER WILLIAMS IN HYPERALLERGIC

Peter Williams has long engaged issues of American racism and the Black experience, and his new exhibition Black Universe at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles is no different: his paintings include flying cars, abstracted landscapes, snatches of text (“Trump,” “Wall Street,” “Lawyers,” “Floater,” and “Help” all appear), and Black astronauts whose need to wear helmets in space makes me think of the phrase “I can’t breathe.”

REVIEW: PETER WILLIAMS IN HYPERALLERGIC

In the exhibition Peter Williams: Incarceration at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts, Louisville, Kentucky (February 7–March 21, 2020), curated by Chris Reitz, the focus is on incarceration; as a Black man and a painter who feels entrapped in modernism’s legacy of the grid, Williams recognizes that imprisonment of one kind or another has run throughout White America’s dealing with Black people since the beginning of its history.
