Compositions of the mind
5th Primary School of Florina “Theodoros Kastanos”
“I want to draw attention to issues;
I want people to be informed”
She was born in Chicago in 1954.
Influenced by the aesthetic of Abstract Expressionism
The artist merges colorful abstraction with feminist
imagery, inspiring a dynamism and unconventional
theatricality unique to her work.
Williams challenges sexuality, gender, violence, and
aggression through her signature cartoon-like swirls of
abstraction.
Sue Williams
“It's a scary time. Everything gets
integrated into the art, not always
consciously. The paintings become a
refuge. If I have visibility, I have the
responsibility to try and change things.”
Though influenced by cartoons, her later work has moved towards a purer
abstraction, devoid of the more explicitly brutalized and mutilated forms of
her earlier work and evoking the compositions of Jackson Pollock’s gestural
paintings with her sweeping tangles of entrails.
The children are informed about the artist:
biography,
style,
inspiration,
messages
Then, they looked at her paintings and studied them.
The children inspired and painted,
following the color composition and
shape of the artist in order to perceive
and understand her better.
The children are received time to work on their imagination and
creativity to think about what they might could present.
 So, separated in small teams of 3 to 4 children decided to carry out
their tasks.
They worked with a mix art forms of decoupage, collage and acrylic
paints.
As materials they used rice papers, table napkins and stuck them on
canvas or wood surfaces.
 At the end, they fixed their final artworks with mount spray.
…they gave name in to their creativity and energy
"See me... through my eyes"
A step before to finalize their art pieces…
Their work actually are compositions of the mind. Pieces
of imagination that redefine the central form, created
their own space, through their thoughts, wills, secrets -
mixed in space and time - compose and transform the
desire of themselves (of their inner and outer world).
Finally, the art pieces created following the
concept of how they want to be and how others
want to see them.
So, they tried to show that womanhood is not only beauty, but at the
same time it is a powerful mind, a source of loving determination
and creativity in a society, where women, even today, are trying to take
their position as equals. Something that shouldn't even be discussed
since it rightfully holds it from the very beginning of creation.
….see me…
The end
