Jed Williams paintings poetically explore the inner world of symbols, memes & icons tapping into ancient mysteries and futuristic fears with Academy trained skill and worldly experience. Located near the hip strip of clubs, galleries and restaurants along the East end of Bainbridge Street, Jed Williams Studio is incorporating marketing into his art business plan with monthly openings, group shows and special offers. Jed is offering fairly priced prints, combo packages and try it, then buy it plans; business is often the Achilles Heel of being an artist, seeing Jed take on the juggling act of creating, marketing and curating his own gallery is a model of determination and confidence.
Drive My Car, oil & acrylic on canvas @ Jed Williams Studio, Philadelphia PA.
The Lock is the Key, acrylic & mixed medium on paper and a new untitled work. Jed Williams is experimenting in 3D with a mash-up of found art and his unique pops of color and shine; Jed often imbues his paintings with glittery plastics, liquidy mylar and shiny mesh enhancing the experience of bold color vibrating the space within the canvas. Transportation images are a recurring theme and the new sculpture/painting has a skate punk vibe. Cars appear often in Williams paintings, the freedom and extension of will a car provides is a theme many can resonate with, to be able to just get away from it all, hit the road with a full tank of gas and a clear windshield is the ultimate luxury.
