New Exhibition for UWTSD's Swansea College of Art Professor

20.04.2017

University of Wales Trinity Saint David's Professor Sue Williams has a new solo exhibition launching in Cardiff. The exhibition, entitled ‘I SEE RED,' opens at TEN. gallery in Roath, Cardiff and is a collection of Professor Williams' latest works which includes a comprehensive drawing installation and large charcoal drawings.

“TEN. is offering a fresh and timely approach to exhibiting contemporary art in Wales and I am very pleased to be showing new work in such an excellent gallery,” she said. “Director Cat Gardiner continues to show unending support to artists in Wales and I look forward to working alongside such an innovative gallerist!”

Professor Williams is a prominent international artist with a recognised body of work and an exhibition history of both solo and group shows on five continents. She has taken part in many exhibitions and residencies and has received many awards including the National Eisteddfod Wales. She was a shortlisted artist for the Artes Mundi 2, International Visual Art Prize 2006. Her work features in several leading private and public collections throughout the USA, Africa, China and Europe, including National Museum Wales, Contemporary Arts Society and The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea.

In addition to her work with UWTSD's Swansea College of Art, Professor Williams sits on the Board of Trustees for AXISWEB, an independent charity that promotes contemporary art in the UK. A pilot scheme offering students a platform for their degree show and personal profiles is due to be launched by AXISWEB on Monday 1st May and is a collaboration between Professor Williams and AXISWEB Director Mark Smith.

As one of Wales’ leading contemporary female artists Professor Williams’ work is challenging in its links to contemporary lives and the sexualisation of Western society and offers an immersive response to the complex world of human frailty drawing the viewer into a world of provocative sexual politics.

The exhibition is open for viewing by appointment. For more details, please contact the gallery directly.
