TEN is pleased to present MY CHERRY BOMB, a solo exhibition of new work by award-winning artist sue williams at STUDIO18 in pontycymmer

MY CHERRY BOMB features williams’ latest body of large-scale paintings on canvas. akin to pages from a visual diary, published for all to see, williams’ characteristically bold + immediate paintings tell of awkward encounters, sticky situations + erotic experiences. issues of sexual communication, dysfunction + human frailty are imbedded in her work; themes which are explored + executed with such truthfulness + raw honesty

the exhibition will showcase for the first time a newly developed print folio, produced in conjunction with the print market project, cardiff. a karma sutra for the digital age, LOVE HEARTS is a folio of 20 prints in a limited edition of 10. in stark contrast to the size + vibrancy of the paintings, the prints are monochrome + intimate in scale. reminiscent of the victorian-era’s erotic miniatures, the viewer becomes a voyeur – a position which is perhaps more familiar in today’s digitally dependent world

at the heart of williams’ practice is a universal, wholly necessary yet simple theme: that of human communication. the result is a practice which challenges taboos + provokes a response – it demands attention from the viewer. some may be dismissive, others embarrassed but such universally human themes are relatable to all – whether we admit it or not

all artwork will be available to purchase at STUDIO18 + online at from 09 june

appointments to view the exhibition outside of opening days can be arranged by contacting TEN director cat gardiner via phone, email or online at
