Sue Williams (American, b. 1954) is a feminist painter, sculptor and draftswoman who combines themes of gender politics and the human body into her work. Her early works consisted of highly-narrative comic and caricature paintings that challenged earlier feminist artists, such as Judy Chicago (American, b.1939), by exploring more controversial themes, such as domestic violence, sexual obscenity and her anger towards the acceptance of sexism in society. In the 1990s, her work became highly Expressionist, and she often combined text in her paintings. Her violent images became more abstract and fragmented, and in 1993, she was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship. The early 2000s brought another stylistic change, as her works became more monochromatic, and her brushstrokes became an essential theme. Often Abstract, Williams’ painting can depict details of body parts and human organs, such as torn blood vessels and broken bones, amongst others. Williams received her BFA at the California Institute of the Arts in 1976. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
