I'll think over it | Fiona J. Williams | Portriat

The description is written by curator Emi Eleode for the exhibition: Humans in their most Vulnerable Form.


This painting of a portrait is one of the seldom paintings that incorporate furniture or clear background. The colourful red sofa with blue, green, white and orange patterns she is sitting on reminds me of the kind of designs you could find in a Moroccan souk. This painting is one example of Fiona’s passion for textiles which she uses as a way to contextualise the psychological and emotional content she explores.


That drape from her blue coat (or shawl?), looks luxurious. The richness in colour from the acrylic paints add texture to the painting that brings it to life. Her clothing has a flowy look to it, especially from the outerwear which has a water effect. The outfit itself is quite austere, but you can tell that it’s of high quality.


The arch of her brows and that pointed look from her eyes as if to say ‘I know what you’re doing’ or ‘give me some time to think,’ glancing over to the object/ person that caught her attention, deep in thought. The light golden, orange hues of the halo circling Fiona’s hair– wonderfully detailed to texturise her braids, has a star aspect to it. Like the sun is shining high in the sky, illuminating the brown background. The halo looks ethereal and dream-like, contrasting with her rigid figure.


This self-portrait feels candid. We want to know about her, what she is thinking. Fiona is drawn to create self-portraiture paintings because when we look in the mirror, we do not only see our face and physical features but that of our parents and siblings, history and our ancestry.
