Selected Paintings by Ernest Williamson III


Yayue Dancers

Oil, Acrylic, & Ink on Paper

Abstract art is a venue for artists who desire to portray the dissonance and continuity among elements of harmony and elements of chaos. By and large my work attempts to manifest the truest reality of reality which is a universal disconnect among connections within our own worlds and within our countless universes.
