Fiona Williams is a visual artist based in Naarm Melbourne. She has a MFA (research) from Monash University, and is currently an artist-in-residence at City of Port Phillip's Shakespeare Grove Studios.
Williams practice engages with aspects of the painterly and cinematic and includes methods of image-generation that are intuitive and responsive to her environment. Through her work Williams explores connections between concepts of time and vitality, by looking at what emerges over time through the operations of different material traces. This follows her interest in locating the image in the world with a degree of slightness and flux.
These processes translate to a playful engagement with pictorial image-spaces, configurations of images, and finding images that are emergent over time. The resultant images, as they form part of a practice, develop in relation to her own position and understanding of time, place, and materiality.
