Michael Aaron Williams: Nature | Nurture
Feb. 13th – Saturday, March 5th Opening Reception: February 13, 2016 from 6-9pm ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are excited to announce the upcoming exhibition of Tennessee based Michael Aaron Williams. The artwork will consist of paintings created with coffee and ink applied to joined ledger paper from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The Opening Reception will be on Saturday, February 13th from 6 – 9pm.   The show will continue through March 5th.   In the artists words “Through my paintings and drawings, I attempt to 
represent the fragile nature of  life, purity, and culture. Paint and ink are the vehicles 
by which movement and  conflict are expressed. The beauty and pain of human 
nature are represented by the creation and deconstruction of the artwork. Rather 
than wholeness  necessitating beauty, I portray the human soul as complete despite the fractures.As such, the artwork becomes more relatable to the viewer and 
consequently  more impacting.”   In 2011 Williams attended school at Samford University in Alabama earning a degree in art. In 2015 he earned his MFA in studio art from Washington University in St. Louis.  He has received numerous awards for his artworks and has been invited to speak on many occasions regarding his artwork. He has traveled to Europe, Asia, Egypt, and America to paint and install commissions and participate in exhibitions.   Michael is a full time artist and lives and works in TN with his wife Molly and their newborn son, Bear.   317 E Grand Ave, Escondido, CA 92025 760-781-5779 760-707-2770
