La Jetée
La Jetée is a landmark of science-fiction filmmaking, a 28-minute masterpiece told almost entirely in still frames. Set in a post-apocalyptic near-future, it tells the story of an unnamed man whose vivid childhood recollections make him the perfect guinea pig for an experiment in time travel. After a lengthy and nightmarish period of conditioning, he is sent into the past, where he falls in love with a woman whom he once saw on a pier. At the experiment’s conclusion, he is visited by an advanced race, who offer him the opportunity to journey into their future world, but he instead requests that they send him permanently into the past, where he can remain with the woman of his dreams. A singular experience.
– Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Implicitly Stated
Comprising of small watercolor studies, Michael Williams transforms singular expressions into a communal dialogue. Through the spatial placement and specific groupings, the work creates interpretive narratives that range from simple emotional relationships to broader societal themes. The use of light and the implication of line it creates has always been an essential part of Williams’ work. Combined with the delicacy of watercolor, it creates an intimacy and acts to further enhance the audience’s role in the interpretation of the work’s narrative.
