Margaux Williamson @ White Cube Bermondsey
19 March 2021 - 11 May 2021
Margaux Williamson’s practice centres on painting but incorporates books, text and film projects, often in ways that connect and inform each other. Her figurative paintings frequently begin with writing, a way of sketching with words that offers an unconventional path to pictorial themes, accessing what she has termed the ‘natural order of your random imagination.
Focusing on the quotidian – the unremarkable scenes and landscapes of contemporary, everyday life – her paintings depict recognisable subjects, skewed through an intuitive and collaged vision. The corner of a domestic setting, an urban front door or the dark interior of a bar, all point to the already ‘seen’ but are rendered in a way which disrupts coherent visual order and any linear path towards meaning.
