Graduating from Leeds Arts University in 2020, William Fice creates a world where the figures take on an almost ghostly presence .
William assembles his paintings through loosely gestured layers of colour. An intensely saturated image arises and repositions the mundanity of the everyday into an altered, more inviting space. He incorporates a direct use of outline to provide the image with a structure as well as to accentuate the figure, movement and body languages that are being performed by his subjects.
William believes in art as the freedom to explore ideas unique to perspective – Art as a culmination of thoughts, feelings and interests interchanging with life experience, creating an opening into a world that serves as an extension of one’s self. In William’s case, he is recording and presenting back a different way of looking at something that might not be acknowledged otherwise.
Williams’s first solo online exhibition; ‘Waiting Room’ has now been extended until the 31st March.Curated by Patrick Davies Contemporary Art, the show consists of a body of 15 small scale paintings.
