American, b. 1954

Sue Williams explores issues of gender inequality and injustice through her semi-abstract paintings that depict forms of sexual violence, rape, battery, and emotional abuse. Forsaking the hyper-masculine themes and methods of Abstract Expressionism, she introduces figures of genitalia, severed body parts, and internal organs into her large, frenetic, compositions. Though influenced by cartoons, her later work has moved towards a purer abstraction, devoid of the more explicitly brutalized and mutilated forms of her earlier work and evoking the compositions of Jackson Pollock’s gestural paintings with her sweeping tangles of entrails.
