July 2016 Unicorn Of The Month: Zachary J. Williams

 Crazy for God. Oil on canvas. 80” x 64”

My work is an exploration of the many absurdities of modern American political and social life, spanning religious and economic motivations underlying aggressive American nationalism, to the numbing epidemic of gun violence, to the hypnotic cacophony of the real and the imagined.

Bedtime Bear. Oil on panel. 20” x 30”
These works illustrate a literal fragmentation of societies. With each painting, I confront and plead with my viewers’ emotional state, to provoke a dialogue surrounding the obstacles, illusions, and uncertainties of our environmental future.
After Dark. Oil on canvas. 40” x 28”
Too Many Puppies. Oil on linen. 50” x 60”
The Oceans Wide. Oil on canvas. 24” x 78”
Angry Bombs. Oil on Panel. 15 1/2" X 19 1/4"
