Blue Eyes, 2016 Acrylic and paint pen on canvas

Posted by & filed under Arts & Entertainment, Exhibitions, Gallery & Museums.

Sydney born artist Jake Williams presents a collection of his bright and brazen works thanks to Lost At E Minor and Fostered.

Inspired by the ocean and landscapes that surrounded him whilst growing up on Sydney and the mid north coast, this influence is still strong in his sweeping landscapes and intriguing use of colour and light which mimics the glittering retractions of light across the surface of water.

This collection features colourful scenery tinged with the psychedelic and striking portraits layered with texture. The artworks completed on recycled records are especially unique.

In his artist statement, Williams said: “My recent collection of works is an extension of my inner self, a reminder of the infinite possibilities one may be lucky enough to encounter in a lifetime and the endless surroundings of our natural world. It is a journey, an exploration of emotions, locations and living in the moment.” (AM)
