Ken Williams Jr. : Everyday Joy, 2020

Ken Williams Jr. has supplied us with his most personal body of work to date. While resoundingly true to his exuberant style, this show draws on themes many of us have experienced in the past several months: a slowing of pace, a deepened appreciation for the small pleasures in life, and finding joy in everyday experience. Ken demonstrates his joie de vivre with every piece he produces, using his trademark riotous color combinations and lovingly curated mix of semi-precious, vintage and traditional materials. Whether depicting his Friday evening ritual of making pizza at home with Orlando and their cat Valentino, or the fleeting beauty of a yucca in full bloom spotted on the roadside, Kens work always reminds us to live life to its fullest every single day.
