Los Angeles native Senon Williams is a lifelong artist and musician. A founding member of the always-engaging Dengue Fever, Williams’ visual work finds space in the natural, exposing outstanding and devastating stages of human evolution. “To provoke thought, a question works better than answers. I enjoy to start a story I resolve in different ways depending on my mood". With imagery ranging from stark silhouettes to lush landscapes and human forms staged in undetermined acts of hope, his pairing of words and imagery form a poignant visualization of the inherent human struggle both ancient and contemporary.
Williams' first book, "Hunted & Gathered" was painstakingly produced by Hamilton Press. The press was established in 1990 by master printmaker Ed Hamilton and artist Ed Ruscha to encourage artists to produce art in a peaceful, unhurried atmosphere. Steeped in traditional book making in a modern age, each publication itself is a fine object created by an esteemed team. Designed by Lorraine Wild and Marina Mills Kitchen of Green Dragon Office with color separations by Echelon Color, Santa Monica and printed by Dr.Cantz’sche Druckerei Median GmbH in Ostfildern, Germany, the first edition consists of seven hundred hardbound copies along with a deluxe edition of limited to fifty copies containing an original work on paper by the artist.
