JOHN MCWILLIAMS: PROPHECIES

Full moon hangs over the marsh. A strong wind from the southeast, clouds move across the moon’s face. Light is falling. Time has opened. Prophecies reside in everything. Windows to the future are everywhere.

John McWilliams’s work is inspired by life in the Lowcountry, where the issues of life and its transitions are poignantly felt within the landscape. The artist explores the organic shifts of both natural and imagined worlds. The repetition found in the iconic, straight lines of the wood is both graphic and expressive and reflects the cyclical nature of time and the reverberation found in life passages. This fundamental form of art-making has a timeless quality, as McWilliams notes, “At its best a woodcut is a distillation of an idea controlling the page that it sits on, an enigma.”
