Although Justin Williams’ works may appear to be a product of an active imagination, in recent years Williams has been living and working in Victoria’s picturesque Dandenong Ranges, here he has found unique tales and characters that prove to be more curious than fiction. From his idyllic studio in the mountains he investigates his relatively isolated surroundings through ceramic and painted works.

From the beauty found in nature to local folklore, including tales of a lone black panther that wanders the bush, to the often-strange inhabitants of the quite mountain towns, Williams produces work that reflects on and celebrates the character of the place he lives. In his upcoming solo exhibition Williams will present a new series of paintings and ceramic works that again look to his sleepy mountain home.

Through the use of crystals, clay and even dirt, the new works will also interrogate our societies sense of value, the often arbitrary hierarchy we place on our natural resources and the notion of inherent beauty.
