John Austin Williams

Painting in Mixed Media, Oils + Drawing

“Visual Art affects us most powerfully when it takes risks and John Austin-Williams’ paintings walk the border between representation and abstraction and between vigorous drawing and the sweep of abstract painting.” (Lionel Phillips)
A passion for music and landscape provides the basis for much of the artist’s work which is, in turn, primarily about it’s own existence.
John studied with Cecil Waller and then at the Polish School of Art, London from which he gained a distinction. He is recognised as an artist by the Revenue Commissioners, Dublin. In the South West he exhibits at Alpha House Gallery, Sherborne and Bettles Gallery, Ringwood.
Paintings and drawings from £250 to £800
