Bio

Brittney Leeanne Williams’ work explores the Black body as a site of suffering, memorialisation and transcendence. Rather than constructing Blackness through ‘black’ skin, Williams uses red to disrupt the viewer’s expectations, reinterpreting the figure carrying the Black experience. She excavates personal and familial histories to create surreal pastoral landscapes for these fictional red bodies to roam
