“Koncrete Kandy was painted especially for Wish Children. The work is both a celebration of my love of painting, and a symbolic arrangement of forms. I wanted to convey a sense of nurturing, protection, and elevation.” says Williams. “The painting shows some larger forms surrounding smaller forms, which represents those who can help surrounding children less fortunate.”
The collection can be purchased through the China Guardian (HK) from October 5-19, 2020. The Charity Editions are available for 3,500 HKD (27 by 38 cm wide) and the Special Edition “Love” for 10,000 HKD (55 by 79 cm wide). More details on cguardian.com.hk.
