G. M. Williams
Artist of Many Talents
I grew up in the stillness of the Mojave desert. The brilliant desert sun. The dark starry night skies. Both are a part of who I am. This California desert is where I will always call home. In the desert, one is able to reflect and retreat from the world. It’s where time feels like it stands still. I was able to develop myself, my art, my mind and my practice in this stillness. Outwardly, I walk in the swirl of the world today. Inwardly, I walk with the stillness of my home in my heart. The displayed photographs are of something that we all witness nationwide. Fireworks on the 4th of July. I was lifeguarding in my hometown in the desert. Holding my breath underwater and looking up, I was able to capture these images. Later, in quiet reflection, I discovered a happy accident, these photographs display two common symbols found across cultures. That being of light (the human soul) and water (the human subconscious). Through the lens of water the hidden truth of light is revealed. Much like the hidden truth of the human condition is best expressed in art, dreams, and the collective subconscious.

What my Collectors say:
The image is so fascinating to me, the split second capture of a moment in time so finite that it allows the exploration into a realm of images that our human eyes simply cannot capture. The harnessing of an explosion and a reaction as well the colors and pieces flying make it an ever exciting piece of art to look at and truly a unique type of imagery...
Gloria Williams creates the most mesmerizing and captivating photographic images I have ever seen! Her picture, entitled "Hidden Faces", incorporates passionate color and movement in a most unique creative expression. Each time I look at it I see images and designs that I had not seen before. The picture has such incredible visual motion that you can feel its energy. I cannot wait to add the "Angels Rising" piece to my collection, as I feel that it would be the perfect compliment to "Hidden Faces".
