About

"Lazarus from the Tombstone" is an acrylic painting with oil stick, graphite and collage elements on canvas measuring 86" high by 98" wide. It references the story of Lazarus risen from the dead by Christ the savior – a story which has mythical roots across every culture. As a subject, it's huge. Arresting time. Reversing life and death. Phoenix rising. Someone lost is now found and redeemed. A second chance. And what do we do now with a second chance? With that in mind, what can we make of this painting, by what path do we enter into it? Perhaps it's a well-known path, a backyard path to our old neighborhood, home and family. Press Release 2018: "Williams acknowledges a large range of influences on his vision: the moral lessons embodied in the works of 17th century engraver Jacques Lagniet, the darkling phantasms and tragic reportage of Goya’s Caprichos and Disasters of War, and the personal mythologizing of the late paintings of Philip Guston. Such works echo throughout Williams social surrealist re-visioning." – George Del Barrio, Vanderbilt Republic, Brooklyn NY Dale Williams has exhibited in the New York City area for the past 25 years. He is a 2014 recipient of a Fellowship in Printmaking/Drawing/Book Arts from the New York Foundation for the Arts. His most recent one-person show, “America Now Suite,” which re-visioned American history in service of the civic imagination, was held at Gowanus Loft, Brooklyn in October 2018. A selection of portraits from “America Now Suite” was included in the BRIC Biennial, Winter/Spring 2019. His portrait of Osip Mandelstam was included in the group show "Fresh Paint" at Art of Our Century Gallery, New York, February 2020. A show of drawings from his ongoing collaborative project with writer Ben Miller, “Cage Dies Bird Flies,” was held at the Center for Literary Arts of Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, April 2019; a performance based on the drawings was staged to coincide with the exhibition. His work has been published in the Journal of Black Mountain College, BOMB, Ecotone, Inverted Syntax, Bat City Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review and other print and on-line journals. He studied art at the Cooper Union, Hunter College and Cal Arts.
