Improvisation, Form and Narrative
Speaker: Charles Williams, CCCU

Charles Williams, Senior Lecturer for Painting in the Fine and Applied Art programme, is putting together a PhD (PAR) proposal, looking at his studio practice and theoretical background. The areas he is looking at specifically are Observational Drawing in his training background and its role in determining the realisation of form in his work, the role of improvisation in the studio process, and the layering of narratives in the work. Charles will present a slide show of the work and supporting imagery and would welcome suggestions and comments on these elements.

Born in Evanston, Illinois, USA, Charles Williams was educated at Kent College in Canterbury, Maidstone College of Art and the Royal Academy, London. He was elected to the New English Art Club (NEAC) in 1996 and in 1999 was a founder member of the Stuckist group. He has shown his work in London, the UK and abroad, including a solo exhibition at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in California. He is the author of Basic Drawing (Robert Hale, 2011) and Basic Watercolour (Robert Hale, 2014).
