art | p. williams

jon always makes me watch these "mayday" shows about airplanes that fail mid air. i keep telling him that if he doesn't change the channel, he is going to be hard-pressed to ever get me on an airplane again. to me the horrible thought of crashing is always at the tippy top of my brain while flying.

but these beautiful works by p. williams make the mayhem of air traffic and the frightening possibility of going down...kind of beautiful no? the swashes of brightly coloured paint over the airplane and the swath of flames or clouds is so graceful! plus, the series is called "cluster f***" - a term which i absolutely adore but almost never feel comfortable using out loud.

looking through past series of work, it seems like p. williams is more of an installation artist - but i think these graphic drawings are headed more in the right 'direction.'
