TEN is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by award-winning artist Sue Williams.

RAPTURES & RUPTURES features Williams’s latest body of paintings on canvas and mixed media drawings. Akin to pages from a visual diary, published for all to see, Williams’s characteristically bold and immediate paintings tell of awkward encounters, sticky situations and erotic experiences. Issues of sexual communication, dysfunction and human frailty are imbedded in her work; themes which are explored and executed with such truthfulness and raw honesty.

The exhibition will also include the release of a new publication LUST LONGING LOVE - a collaborative book of words and drawings between Williams and art theorist Marilyn Allen, documenting their conversations and responses and offering different perspectives on what it is to live as a woman in the 21st Century.

At the heart of Williams’s whole practice is a universal, wholly necessary yet simple theme: that of human communication. The result is a practice which challenges taboos and 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.

Immerse yourself in the visual overload of 'LoveLustLonging', Sue Williams' first solo exhibition in the North of Ireland in more than a decade.In this exhibition internationally renowned artist Sue Williams reflects the sense of a society perpetuating its own fear. The works deal with the saturation of mediation and the frailty of the self in response to a bombardment of images.
Sue Williams explores the nature of sexuality and our relationships with our own bodies. Through work which combines drawing, painting, film and collage, Williams challenges the tradition of idealised nude painting, presenting the realities of the body, sexual identity and health. Work is often installed in a 'notice-board' format, challenging artistic conventions.
