Ginny Williams
"Marco Polo" Small Still Life Painting

2018

About

This piece depicts a still life of an orange and a chinoiserie porcelain jar on a wooden table, with a green drape and Hokusai's "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" hanging on the wall behind. This piece is unframed and the artist signed on the bottom right. We had the privilege of meeting Ginny Williams at an international art exhibit in Boston, where her striking representational paintings were getting a lot of attention. We were immediately drawn to the thoughtfully painted work, the clever titles and the rich, deep hues. And when we got to know the artist, we were equally charmed by her delightful wit, her sensibilities as an artist, her depth of knowledge and her modesty. This one’s got it all and we are honored to represent her. GC Williams has a BA in art history and began her artistic career as a self-taught artist. She subsequently studied at several classical ateliers including 4 years at the Academy of Realist Art, Boston. Influenced heavily by her studies of and love for the art of the northern European Renaissance, she creates still life paintings that employ chiaroscuro and symbolism to point beyond themselves to more enduring truths. Just as the still life masters of long ago used everyday objects to convey timeless messages pertinent to the culture of the day, Williams’ works often have underlying symbolism in the placement and combination of objects she chooses to paint. With tight renderings and playfulness she attempts to draw the viewer beyond an initial appreciation of a pretty picture into a deeper engagement and understanding of the language of the still life.
