Throughout the 1990s, Williams radically shifted her focus, thrusting formalist concerns and painterly technique to the forefront, allowing form and color to supersede explicit content. In recent years, the artist has embraced the new challenge of uniting these disparate approaches--figurative representation and lyric abstraction--to again enable her canvases to be clear vehicles of protest. The resulting works evoke Williams early comic book influences with crisp outlines and blocks of bright color.

Against raw canvas and transparent acetate, her glaring palette, which includes forceful red, luminous orange, saccharine pink and neon green, conveys a sense of immediacy, energetic movement and the artists signature wry humor.
