James Brendan Williams
New York, NY
Website: http://
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: Composed of industrial and found materials, the uncanny installations of James Brendan Williams evoke common, yet rarely noticed, components of the built environment. Provisional structures, street signs, and cast-off objects are brought from the periphery to the center in this emerging artist's vision. In a process he describes as "uncoding," Williams infuses these everyday objects with new resonances that are at once beautiful, humorous, and disquieting. Through his cross-media practice, Williams also pushes at the boundaries between the handmade and mass-produced, natural and artificial, art and non-art materials. Stripped of fixed meaning, the work reflects and amplifies the wonder and absurdity of the changing world around us.
