The Gage Family Art Gallery
Commonplace imagery---mass-produced, observed, and remembered---becomes a threatening encounter in Willcox’s painting series Witness. By juxtaposing seemingly unrelated references to moments and places, to people and objects, the artist gives viewers the opportunity to draw their own conclusions about possible commonalities and contradictions. For the artist, “These varying methods of perception and representation form our collective memories and sympathies. I want to see how I might best use them to evoke the memories and sympathies of my audience.”
