Todd Williamson (b. 1964 | American) is a contemporary painter based in Los Angeles. His work is strongly influenced by the mid 20th century American Abstract Expressionist school. Williamson's paintings are characterized by their strict observance to geometry enlisting parallel formations that reflect a formal consideration of light, color, and shape. Using a refined process of building and removing multiple layers of oil on canvas, his works employ both complementary hues and opposing values, focusing on the subtle layers of color and movement. Williamson's "Processional", was one of twenty official exhibitions at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019 w/ over 100, 000 visitors & a top pick by Forbes, Domus, Widewalls, Artteez, and the Venice Insider!
Williamson has exhibited extensively in both the United States and abroad. He was presented w/ the Pollock Prize for Creativity in 2019. Other awards include Artists Special Recognition-Art Non Stop International Film Festival (Buenos Aires), an Icon Award-Los Angeles Beverly Arts, Special Mention Award MAVV Museum, and numerous others. "Williamson’s large-scale paintings feel nearly monolithic in their physicality and the sheer weight of their presence." by Eve Wood, Artillery Magazine, Jan 5, 2021 "Abstract works of remarkable gestural power scattered around the chapel, even on the altar. Phrases from famous people accompany the works as engravings on black plates. words, tweets, and posts extrapolated from their speeches, written in Latin as messages of prophets, letters, and testimonies that thus take on even deeper importance." by Antonio Conte, Il Mondo Disuk, Nov 12, 2019
