Alumnus Todd Williamson, a 1988 music graduate, will hold an art exhibition called “Stillness” in the George Berges Gallery in New York City, opening on April 2, 2020. The exhibit aims to inspire viewers to question current events in society and reflect on who we are underneath the pervading noise.
“As humans, we have an inherent need for stillness and quiet,” he said. “But this seems unattainable today with our internet-rich, over-communicated existence filled with myriad assault on our consciousness.”
“Stillness” features his latest abstract contemporary paintings with symbolism rooted in his works through color and number theory, combined with mysticism, to portray introspection into society’s modern value systems.
This will be Williamson’s first solo show in New York, following his solo exhibition at the 58th Venice Biennale and winning the Polluck Prize for Creativity.
