Zoe Williams


For her third solo exhibition at the gallery titled The Unruly Glove, The Green Bum and The Sickly Trickle Zoe Williams (Salisbury, UK, 1983) has produced a series of drawings depicting a fantastical and erotically charged world. 
The undulating fantasy landscape displayed through the drawings depict recurrent figures and characters such as; flying gloves, an art nouveau glass fist, numerous glass and plastic sex toys, gems, rabid minks, 
octopus’ limbs, sausages/turds, green feather capes, whips, cream cakes, green bums, embellished cooked skin like boots, and yellowing liquids, all frolicking in and out of the frame.

The irreverent use of art historical references and mixture of fairy tale imagery with erotically charged content, is also intended to subvert and interrogate the symbolism they embody. The absorption into these psychosexual fantasy realms, the indulgence in folly and the absurd is intended to be a small practice of defiance and resistance against dominant forms of reason and control. 

As part of the exhibition Williams has produced a small run publication incorporating her drawings and reactions to them in poem form by Artist and Writer Susan Finlay.
