This show spins off my interest in percussion, my old high-school drum set and a few different media techniques. One of those techniques involves collaging with rice papers. As I made some of the paper artwork it sparked memories of the work of Paul Horiuchi, a mid-century artist in Seattle who did a lot of beautiful abstract work with those materials. I’ve invoked his name in a couple of these new works, including the title piece, ‘Horiuchi’s High Hat’.
More of my work, large and small, can be found on my website, recently retooled: williamsonstudioseattle.com
