Michael Williams combines contemporary realism with a minimalist sensibility, using an overwhelming sense of light to deconstruct figural landscapes. He develops stark yet delicate depictions of the human figure, leading to the scrutiny of candid and often amusing observations that provide a dialogue on social identity and self-awareness. This obsessive scrutiny, deconstructed throughout his work, is broken by implied lines and ambiguous shapes, which fill the entirety of the implicit space. Pools and strokes of watercolor translucently enhance this deconstructive realism as he gives way to the hints of detail that acts as the visual focus of this process.
