"Williams' landscape paintings present a uniquely focused view of the world. Her pictures do not depict picturesque views; rather they create scenes cinematic in their mood, setting, and sense of impending drama. Her paintings often depict lonely places, the air thick with isolation and dread, like an image by Hopper crossed with a scene from a Coen brothers' movie. In her night paintings, the ramshackle buildings and storage sheds, battered signs and water towers, glow with an ominously mysterious life under the nighttime illumination. What isn't seen is as important as what is and points to the real subject of these paintings: the heavy presence of the impenetrable night.”
