"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
