EVERYONE LOVES THE SUNSHINE



Winthrop University
In “Everyone Loves the Sunshine,” artist Charles Edward Williams seeks to release tension from today's current socio-political climate by delving into the past. He began with photos culled from both his own childhood and historical images from the 60's of community amid segregation. Williams edits and manipulates each scene with a mix of media, focusing on poignant symbols of connection. The physical gesture of mark-making allows the artist to claim his own interpretation on history. He shapes dialogue between his emotionally expressed abstraction and the captured moment of time. Williams navigates a path through the emotional turbulence by forcing focus through the layers of color and figuration.
