Megan Williamson’s new series of paintings and drawings are filled with virtuoso scenes of circus rehearsals. They epitomize all that is best in her work: complex and layered compositions, masterful handling of color and intelligent narratives. While Williamson is inspired by the formidable legacy of circus-related art, she has created her own, personal vocabulary of acrobats, horseback riders, animals and the iconic striped tents. Inhabiting timeless landscapes, they celebrate behind-the-scenes work and can be seen as a metaphor for an artist’s life.
