About the Artist

James S. Williams has been making art since he copied the cool hot rod t-shirt designs of Stanley Mouse as a teenager. Born in Memphis, Jim grew up in Dallas and studied art and sculpture at Stephen F. Austin State University and North Texas University. In 1972, Jim moved to Austin, joining the counter-culture lifestyle which offered a low cost of living, eclectic array of creatives, and burgeoning music and art scene.

Artist Statement

Jim Williams draws influence from the work of Franz Kline, Paul Klee, Roberto Matta, Tom Wesselmann, Chinese calligraphy, tai chi, and automotive design. Trained as a sculptor, Jim explores the ambiguity of three-dimensional objects in space through the practice of allowing the present moment to guide his brush.
