Emrys Williams was born in Liverpool in 1958 and moved with his family to Colwyn Bay on the North Wales coast in 1969. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London (1976-1980).
“ My work explores ideas to do with memory and imagination, creating works that play with elements of abstraction and figuration; improvisation is an important element in the process, responding to the material and compositional possibilities that arise as a work progresses. Over time I have developed many motifs and a visual vocabulary that allows for a dynamic and exploratory approach to picture making. I hope to make a work that has a physical presence, holding the gaze of the spectator and rewarding contemplation.”
