Tona Williams Art

Tona Williams, NM 2017

I’m a multidisciplinary artist with a particular love for colorful and textural figurative paintings and experiments in sculptural lighting. I work in wood, metal, paper, acrylic panel, layered pigments to bring out what are to me intriguing and delightful dances of light, shadow and texture.

Sculpture Series: Disintegration Reformation

This series fixates on the nexus of wearing away and remerging anew. Deeply textured, multilayered forms express themselves from earthy origins. 

These pieces were created and finished in May-July 2022, and cast at the fantastic Down on the Farm Iron Pour collaboration on July 2. 

Fire Lanterns

Each of my one-of-a-kind cast iron fire lanterns can hold electric lighting or real flames, and can even be placed within a fire for maximum drama.
