Brigitte Williams’ is the winner of the inaugural Catlin Art Prize and her work has been widely exhibited and purchased for private and public collections in the UK and abroad. She received her MFA in 2006 and is currently involved in the Research Development Program at the Slade School of Art.
As Brigitte’s practice has progressed, she has become increasingly preoccupied with linguistic and structural patterns underlying our unconscious understanding of the world. Our recognition of these systems fuel our ability to make predictions and form expectation and Brigitte’s work taps into this by imposing a series of strict geometric (or linguistic) rules to each piece and exploring the visual representation of subjective ideas. The cerebral and clinical nature of the work is enhanced by it’s digital format and Brigitte’s ultimate aim is to completely erase her own subjectivity from her work. She is making a contribution to the development of conceptual art. She attempts to analyse the very concept of representation and the boundary that lies between picture and written text.
