Stuart Williams New York, NY
Stuart William’s environmental art installations have been critically acclaimed around the globe. Since the 1980s, his monumental site-specific works have rolled over sweeping expanses of ranch land in California and have floated on the moats of picturesque chateaux in France. From the Swiss Alps to Central Park, and from Los Angeles to Seattle, his head-turning, mesmerizing works have captivated thousands. Williams holds a degree in architecture from the University of Michigan. Soon after graduation, his interests gravitated decidedly to fine art, and more definitively to site-specific art. His education—a blend of architecture, art, engineering and urban planning—provided him with an intimate understanding of historical context, of scale, and of three-dimensional space. It also gave him a firm grasp on the importance of relating to the unique aspects of a specific site and locale. All these factors, as well as a life-long love of nature, helped to propel him into the realm of large-scale environmental art, with a focus on both rural and urban locations.
