Artists Statement - Maureen Williams:
"My work is concerned with personal narratives and views which are expressed using a three-dimensional canvas to depict altered views or altered landscapes. The paintings reflect my abstract notion of reality as imagery. The imagery has been concerned with the narrative and most recently with the juxtaposition of nature and man's imposition on nature. I use natural and aerial views and the linear aspects of the land together with those impacted by man. Imaginary views are linked with real views and altered.
"My current body of work is based on the environment of Northern Illawara, I have chosen aspects of the local topography to capture a sense of the landscape, encompassing the mood and sense of encapsulation the area creates, with the vaulting escarpment as a backdrop to the woodlands and ocean.
