Washington, DC (November 21, 2018) RW Art presents “Live Your Truth”, the first solo show of DC-based artist Rebecca Williams, featuring both her mixed media paintings and her 3D interpretations exploring the connection between dissent as the basis for truth.
Drawing on prominent figure Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Williams’ works galvanize Ginsburg‘s and others’ obligation to truth and the magnifying effect dissent plays in truth seeking - “You can’t spell truth without Ruth”.
Pulling from Williams’ innate curiosity of information design, technology, and cultural and social issues, she mines for narratives to bring to life through screen-printing, found items collage, and color application. Strength, femininity, brilliant colors and pop culture references combine to grab attention and question assumptions.
Trained as a graphic and interactive designer, Rebecca Williams' visual interests reside in building tension and juxtaposition between long-held traditional expectations of women with a modern reinterpretation, challenging the impact women have had throughout history and pop culture. Known for her strong colors and bold subject matter, her mixed media works on canvas and wood panel are striking and impactful. As a past Creative Director, she began her artistic journey helping business leaders find their voice and express strategy through visualization — and now she turns inward to express her own. Rebecca is tackling her artist and curatorial career in earnest with unwavering support from her brilliant husband and house full of boys and dogs.
RW Art, a non-conventional gallery venture, opened in 2018 in Washington, D.C. specializing in contemporary, urban, and pop art. RW Art is committed to working with emerging artists, providing space to cultivate new techniques and inspire future exhibits and solo projects.
